FYI, I do have a series that does this (even tested) and kills tons of
compat syscalls by that.  But by doing that I found the problem that
compat syscalls issued by io_uring don't trigger in_compat_syscall().
I need to go back to fixing the io_uring vs in_compat_syscall() issue
(probably for 5.9) and then submit the whole thing.
