Very good catching!  I tested this patch with the commands:

$ cd $LINUX_KERN
$ tools/perf/arch/arm64/entry/syscalls/mksyscalltbl \
        $ARM64_TOOLCHAIN_PATH/aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc \
        gcc tools tools/include/uapi/asm-generic/unistd.h

It gives out complete syscall tables:

$ diff /tmp/mksyscall_before.txt /tmp/mksyscall_after.txt
1a2,4

Rather than dropping option "-u" for sort command, I googled and read
the manual of "sort", but cannot find other better method.  So this
patch looks good for me:
