One warning --- please don't check in the syscall number until it
actually hits mainline.  Kees has another patch outstanding for
seccomp(2) that is using the same syscall numbers I have in my patch.
Please treat the numbers in my patch as placeholders until it has been
accepted and we see what numbers we actually get assigned.
