system_call is aligned already; ignore my patch.
Look at the definition of ENTRY() in <linux/linkage.h> instead.

I do think it would be clearer not to have ALIGN in ENTRY(), and to
leave it up to the caller to decide if an entry point warrants alignment
or not.

I'm not going to do the change, though.
