Right. It adds the efd_mask structure. As far as I understand how it works is that the actual user-space definition of the structure should be provided by glibc (sys/eventfd.h), right?

If so, should the man page be updated now? If so, it may result in the situation where the man page describes a structure that's not available in the user space yet.

Is there a formal process to do this kind of kernel+glibc+docs changes?
