Description:
------------
Looking at the code, this function only cares whether the callback returns zero or nonzero, it does not care whether the value is negative or positive like the docs say. This makes sense because this function does not involve any ordering, only comparison of elements

Same for array_udiff(), array_udiff_uassoc(), array_uintersect(),
array_uintersect_assoc() and array_uintersect_uassoc().

Disregard my comment above.  Actually, the functions which
*currently* do not care about anything than (in)equality to zero
are: array_diff_key(), array_diff_assoc(), array_udiff_assoc(),
array_intersect_key(), array_intersect_assoc() and
array_uintersect_assoc().

However, at least in theory the implementation of these functions
may change in the future so they use some kind of ordering, so
changing the docs could introduce forward compatibility issues.
