Noteworthy changes in release 4.6

* Changes in behavior
  * Print diagnostic information about changes in personality mode to
    standard error instead of standard output.

* Improvements
  * Implemented a new method of following clone, fork, and vfork
    syscalls using the Linux kernel's explicit facilities for tracing
    creation of threads and child processes.
  * Implemented CLONE_PARENT and CLONE_UNTRACED flags handling.
  * Implemented decoding of TLS syscalls on m68k.
  * Implemented biarch support on powerpc64.
  * Implemented biarch support for getrlimit() and setrlimit().
  * Implemented decoding of struct ucred in getsockopt SO_PEERCRED.
  * Implemented SOL_SCTP socket options decoding.
  * Added HDIO_* ioctl names.
    (Addresses Debian bug #450953).
  * Added LOOP_* ioctl names.
  * Updated lists of CLOCK_*, CLONE_*, MS_*, and SOL_* constants
    to match Linux 2.6.37.
  * Updated the list of IPPROTO_* constants to match netinet/in.h.
  * Implemented decoding of HDIO_* and BLK* ioctls.
  * Added MicroBlaze architecture support.
  * Added new syscall entries to match Linux 2.6.37.
  * Regenerated list of ioctl names from Linux 2.6.37.
  * Enhanced signal notification decoding.
  * Documented -C and -D options.

* Bug fixes
  * Fixed fetching syscall arguments on m68k.
  * Fixed an error when judging whether a process has children.
  * Fixed get/set_robust_list syscall numbers for powerpc.
  * Fixed a corner case in printing clone flags.
  * Fixed cross-compiling issues.
  * Fixed build issues on powerpc64, SH and SPARC.
  * Fixed syscall flags of fstatat*, mmap, mmap2, fadvise64*, swapoff,
    fgetxattr, flistxattr, fremovexattr, epoll_create, fallocate,
    fanotify_init, and fanotify_mark syscalls.
  * Fixed decoding of get[ug]id, gete[ug]id and setfs[ug]id return values.
  * Fixed biarch support in IO dumping.
  * Fixed raw exit_group decoding.
  * Fixed decoding of file descriptors on 64-bit architectures.
  * Fixed a corner case in waitpid handling.
    (Addresses Red Hat bug #663547).
  * Fixed stat64 decoding on mips
    (Addresses Debian bug #599028).
  * Fixed misleading italics in the manual page.
    (Addresses Debian bug #589323).
