    Then I think we're ok. We do care about bytes, but we care more about
    bytes that actually ever hit the icache or dcache, and this will
    effectively do neither.

    That one should be ok. System calls by definition have the same return
    type, since they all have the same call site. So that one really does fit
    the "argument types differ, but the return type is the same" case.
