numa.7
mtk
A new page giving overview details for the Linux NUMA interfaces.
Incorporates some material from mbind.2, and the description
of /proc/PID/numa_maps from proc.5.


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

link.2
mtk
Note kernel version where Linux stopped following symbolic
links in 'oldpath'; see also http://lwn.net/Articles/294667.
POSIX.1-2008 makes it implementation-dependent whether or not
'oldpath' is dereferenced if it is a symbolic link.
Add a reference to linkat(2) for an interface that allows
precise control of the treatment of symbolic links.

pthreads.7
mtk
Update thread-safe functions list with changes in POSIX.1-2008.
SEE ALSO: add proc(5).

signal.7
mtk
Update list of async-sygnal-safe functions for POSIX.1-2008.
