I'm going to log my objection again that you have you are
scrambling the sense of the bits as compare to clone and that
is very confusing.

Thanks, I do understand your objection. In the document file describing
the feature
I did mention the bit inversion as a source for confusion. However, I
found the
alternatives to be even more confusing. I went back to the original
discussion of
unshare interface on lkml in August of 2000 and in one of the posts
Linus indicated
that it makes sense for unshare(CLONE_FILES) to undo the sharing done by
clone(CLONE_FILES). So I stuck with what I had in the patch posted in mid
December.
