commit 3c66c9600e285a42f042dd596859664b1d1372a7
Author: Florian Weimer <>

    Linux: Pass size argument of epoll_create to the kernel
    The kernel actually verifies it, and a garbage value in the register
    causes improper system call failures.
    Fixes commit c1c0dea38833751f36a145c32 ("Linux: Remove epoll_create,
    inotify_init from syscalls.list") and commit d1d23b134244d59c4d6ef2295
    ("Lninux: consolidate epoll_create implementation").
