Ah! Good catch. These names are correct (see kernel/seccomp.c's
mode1_syscalls and mode1_syscalls_32 arrays), but the location of this
change was unexpected. I was expecting this file to live in
arch/*/include/asm/seccomp.h, not in include/asm-generic/seccomp.h.

However, since it's always the same list, it might make sense to
consolidate them into a single place as a default to make arch porting
easier. However, I think that should be a separate patch.
