The clone3 system call provides a superset of the functionality of clone
and clone2.  It also provides a number of API improvements, including
the ability to specify the size of the child's stack area which can be
used by kernel to compute the shadow stack size when allocating the
shadow stack.  Add:

extern int __clone_internal (struct clone_args *__cl_args,
			     int (*__func) (void *__arg), void *__arg);

to provide an abstract interface for clone, clone2 and clone3.

1. Simplify stack management for thread creation by passing both stack
base and size to create_thread.
2. Consolidate clone vs clone2 differences into a single file.
3. Call __clone3 if HAVE_CLONE3_WAPPER is defined.  If __clone3 returns
-1 with ENOSYS, fall back to clone or clone2.
4. Use only __clone_internal to clone a thread.  Since the stack size
argument for create_thread is now unconditional, always pass stack size
to create_thread.
5. Enable the public clone3 wrapper in the future after it has been
added to all targets.

NB: Sandbox should return ENOSYS on clone3 if it is rejected:

The sandbox issue has been fixed by

The following revision refers to this bug:
  https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/218438259dd795456f0a48f67cbe5b4e520db88b

commit 218438259dd795456f0a48f67cbe5b4e520db88b
Author: Matthew Denton <mpdenton@chromium.org>

Linux sandbox: return ENOSYS for clone3

Because clone3 uses a pointer argument rather than a flags argument, we
cannot examine the contents with seccomp, which is essential to
preventing sandboxed processes from starting other processes. So, we
won't be able to support clone3 in Chromium. This CL modifies the
BPF policy to return ENOSYS for clone3 so glibc always uses the fallback
to clone.

LGTM with just an suggestion below.  Also chromium also has fixed it,
so although it wouldn't be able to fully handled clone3, at least
it won't brick a 2.34 glibc.

The kernel defined the alignment for each member (__aligned_u64) instead
of aligning the struct itself.  It should ok as lon all member are the
same type, but I am not sure if kernel decide to extend using different
internal types. Maybe we should mimic kernel in this regard.
