I think we had that discussion back when I added it and I think I even
proposed that or you did but then we settled on __ARCH_WANT_SYS_CLONE3.
Most likely because it fell in line with the other

I think at this point its alpha, ia64, nios, sparc, and sh that don't
implement it. For some it looks trivial at first glance at least (Fwiw,
nios implements sys_clone() but doesn't select __ARCH_WANT_SYS_CLONE3):
