clone: make clone a wrapper around __clone
The architecture-specific assembly versions of clone did not set errno on failure, which is inconsistent with glibc. __clone still returns the error via its return value, and clone is now a wrapper that sets errno as needed. The public clone has also been moved to src/linux, as it's not directly related to the pthreads API. __clone is called by pthread_create, which does not report errors via errno. Though not strictly necessary, it's nice to avoid clobbering errno here.
