According to the above, the syscall number is in regs->gprs[2] and the
1st syscall argument is in regs->orig_gpr2.

Then in:

... according to the syscall_get_nr(), the syscall number is in
regs->gprs[2], which matches what is in arch/s390/kernel/ptrace.c ...

According to syscall_get_arguments()/syscall_set_arguments(), the 1st
syscall argument is in regs->gprs[2], which *doesn't* match what is in
arch/s390/kernel/ptrace.c.

Is this correct, or should the 1st syscall argument be found in
regs->orig_gpr2 by syscall_get_arguments()/syscall_set_arguments()?
