    amir73il committed May 21, 2019
    Update with all the missing errors the syscall can return, the

    The const specifier is not part of the prototype (it only applies to the
    implementation), so showing it here confuses the reader.

  10. stdarg.3: Remove the NOTES section describing the ancient varargs macros

    mkerrisk committed May 5, 2019
    stdarg.h is now 30 years old, and gcc long ago (2004) ceased to
    implement <varargs.h>. There seems little value in keeping this
    text.

    The BUGS section already explains why you need to be cautious
    about using mallinfo, but given the number of bug reports we see
    on Android, it seems not many people are reading that far. Call it
    out up front.
