Looks like this should be -EFBIG.

Is zeroing that memory really our job? Seems to me we should just check
it is zeroed.

That should be -E2BIG.

I think kernel style mandates that if one branch in an if-else ladder
requires {} all other must use {} as well. So this should be:

if () {
	// one line
} else {
	// one line
	// another line
}

That's a change in behavior for clone3() and sched at least, no? Unless
- which I guess you might have done - you have moved the "error out when
the struct is too small" part before the call to copy_struct_from_user()
for them.
