Mark it as unused in unistd.h (like #232 for asm-i386), and implement it
as sys_ni_syscall in the entry.S table.

Al has already reminded me that it must be marked deprecated for a full
version before it can be removed, but when/if it does, then that's what
would happen until some lucky sucker took its place.
