man-pages-2.79 is released

I've uploaded man-pages-2.79 into the release directory (or view the online pages).

Notable changes in man-pages-2.79 are:

  • a new page describing the timerfd API (timerfd_create(2), timerfd_settime(2), timerfd_gettime(2)), which is new in kernel 2.6.25
  • various additions and improvements to the syslog(2) page (thanks in part to Jeremy Kerr)
  • many clarifications and additions to the epoll.7 page (with help from Davide Libenzi and Chris Heath)
