Do you mean the asm-generic uapi header? In my current series, I do that:

#define __NR_rseq 293
__SYSCALL(__NR_rseq, sys_rseq)
#define __NR_kexec_file_load 294
__SYSCALL(__NR_kexec_file_load,     sys_kexec_file_load)
/* 295 through 402 are unassigned to sync up with generic numbers, don't use */
#if __BITS_PER_LONG == 32
#define __NR_clock_gettime64 403
__SYSCALL(__NR_clock_gettime64, sys_clock_gettime)
#define __NR_clock_settime64 404
...
#define __NR_rt_sigtimedwait_time64 421
__SC_COMP(__NR_rt_sigtimedwait_time64, sys_rt_sigtimedwait,
compat_sys_rt_sigtimedwait_time64)
#define __NR_futex_time64 422
__SYSCALL(__NR_futex_time64, sys_futex)
#define __NR_sched_rr_get_interval_time64 423
__SYSCALL(__NR_sched_rr_get_interval_time64, sys_sched_rr_get_interval)
#endif
#undef __NR_syscalls
#define __NR_syscalls 424

I've tried to feedback on that, but so far nobody has spoken out against
skipping the 107 numbers here, though Russell felt that the idea of
using the same numbers everywhere might not work out.
