These all need to die if you want to get the code merged. uClibc is
a problem for everyone wanting to get a new architecture merged,
so I suggest you talk to the unicore32, openrisc and c64x developers
that are all facing the same problem.

One of you just has to fix uClibc to make it work for everyone.

Can you elaborate? Where does the kernel want these? Can't you fix the
callers to use the more modern version?

These should all be handled by sys_clone.

Just use sys_mmap_pgoff instead of providing your own.

Why the export?

The generic name for this is now sys_call_table.c, so just use that.
Or even better, submit a patch to add this to kernel/sys_call_table.c
and change score, unicore32, tile and openrisc over to use the same.
