I'm implementing  __NR_clone3 syscall within __clone().

I have another problem:CLONE_DETACHED

in musl,internal call __clone()(such as __pthread_create()),the input 
parameter flags

has been set CLONE_DETACHED ,in kernel,there is a check in 

if the condition met,return false.

How to deal with this problem?

int __pthread_create(pthread_t *restrict res, const pthread_attr_t 
*restrict attrp,
                                 void *(*entry)(void *), void *restrict arg)
     ret = __clone((c11 ? start_c11 : start), stack, flags, args, 
                             TP_ADJ(new), &__thread_list_lock);

static bool clone3_args_valid(struct kernel_clone_args *kargs)
           * - make the CLONE_DETACHED bit reusable for clone3
           * - make the CSIGNAL bits reusable for clone3
          if (kargs->flags & (CLONE_DETACHED | CSIGNAL))
                  return false;
