Commit Message

Christian Brauner Aug. 18, 2020, 5:34 p.m. UTC
The old _do_fork() helper doesn't follow naming conventions of in-kernel
helpers for syscalls. The process creation cleanup in [1] didn't change the
name to something more reasonable mainly because _do_fork() was used in quite a
few places. So sending this as a separate series seemed the better strategy.

This commit renames _do_fork() to kernel_clone() but keeps _do_fork() as a
simple static inline wrapper around kernel_clone().
Follow-up patches will switch each caller of _do_fork() and each place where it
is referenced over to kernel_clone(). After all these changes are done, we can
remove _do_fork() completely and will only be left with kernel_clone().
