I see you've set it up in case syscall_to_nr doesn't find the
matching metadata.

How is it possible? The traced syscalls, ie those which are defined through
DEFINE_SYSCALLx(), should be all in the arch syscall table. Or may be I'm
missing something?

In this case we should warn because it would reveal a bug.
