Well, this doesn't look nice ...

CLONE_PARENT_SETTID doesn't look very usefule, so what if we add

	if ((clone_flags & (CLONE_PIDFD|CLONE_PARENT_SETTID)) ==
	                   (CLONE_PIDFD|CLONE_PARENT_SETTID))
		return ERR_PTR(-EINVAL);

at the start of copy_process() ?

Then it can do

	if (clone_flags & CLONE_PIDFD) {
		retval = pidfd_create(pid, &pidfdf);
		if (retval < 0)
			goto bad_fork_free_pid;
		retval = put_user(retval, parent_tidptr)
		if (retval < 0)
			goto bad_fork_free_pid;
	}
