Thanks for the review. You're correct, sys_ni_syscall needs to be fixed
too. I'll include this in v2.

Why would we need ksys_ni_syscall? It seems something like this should
be sufficient:

  asmlinkage long sys_ni_syscall(void);

  SYSCALL_DEFINE0(ni_syscall)
  {
          return sys_ni_syscall();
  }
