    It would be nice to have a cooperation between glibc and the kernel to
    have syscalls mapped by name, not by number.
    With name->number resolved by crtbegin.o reading a public kernel table
    or accessing a fixed-ID kernel map function and filling a map.
    So if internally ( at the application ) sys_getpid has index 0, the
    sysmap[0] will be filled with the id retrieved inside the kernel by
    looking up "sys_getpid".
