==================== Changes in man-pages-3.29 ====================

New and rewritten pages
-----------------------

subpage_prot.2
Michael Kerrisk
New page documenting the PowerPC-specific subpage_prot(2)

aio_init.3
Michael Kerrisk
New page documenting aio_init(3)


Newly documented interfaces in existing pages
---------------------------------------------

posix_fadvise.2
Michael Kerrisk
Document the architecture-specific arm_fadvise64_64() system call
This ARM-specific system call fixes the argument ordering
for that architecture. Since Linux 2.6.14.

sync_file_range.2
Michael Kerrisk
Document the architecture-specific sync_file_range2() system call
As described in commit edd5cd4a9424f22b0fa08bef5e299d41befd5622,
the sync_file_range() argument order is broken for some
architectures (PowerPC, ARM, tile). The remedy was a different
system call using the right argument order on those architectures.

psignal.3
Guillem Jover
Document psiginfo()
psiginfo() was added to glibc in version 2.10.
Michael Kerrisk
Add details, VERSIONS, and BUGS for psiginfo()

ip.7
Balazs Scheidler
Document IP_RECVORIGDSTADDR
Document IP_TRANSPARENT
Michael Kerrisk
Document IP_FREEBIND
Text based on input from Lennart Poettering and Balazs Scheidler.
See https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20082


Changes to individual pages
---------------------------

unix.7
Michael Kerrisk
Document the autobind feature
Michael Kerrisk
Fix description of abstract socket names
As reported by Lennart Poettering:
The part about "abstract" sockets is misleading as it suggests
that the sockaddr returned by getsockname() would necessarily
have the size of sizeof(struct sockaddr), which however is not
the case: getsockname() returns exactly the sockaddr size that
was passed in on bind(). In particular, two sockets that are
bound to the same sockaddr but different sizes are completely
independent.
