I still think disallowing a zero length (unknown length with caller providing the start address only) stack is a gratuitous limitation on the clone3 interface, and would welcome leaving the change to allow zero-length in place. There does not seem to be any good justification for forbidding it, and it does pose other real-world obstruction to use. For example if your main thread had exited (or if you're forking from a non-main thread) and you wanted to create a new process using the old main thread stack as your stack, you would not know a size/lowest-address, only a starting address from which it extends some long (and possibly expanding) amount.
