Since CRIU have patches in kernel that add/modify userspace API, such changes need to be reflected in the official man-pages package (which lives here). This page is for status tracking of man-pages changes.

Need to check[edit]


  • net dialogue interface (uncluding SOCK_DIAG_BY_FAMILY,NETLINK_SOCK_DIAG) --> man7/netlink.7
  • kernel.ns_last_pid, is kernel docs enough?
  • sockoption -- TCP_REPAIR and etc


  • proc: don't show nonexistent capabilities ?
  • ptrace sigmask extension patch
  • ptrace peek-siginfo extension patch


  • MSG_COPY for IPC


  • tty's TIOCGPKT,TIOCGPTLCK,TIOCGEXCL codes -- there is no man pages for other ioctls code, probably just drop this idea
  • smaps flags in man5/proc.5
  • fdinfo
  • F_GETOWNER_UIDS in fcntl
