I am thinking about a registration facility

system_call_register( ... )
system_call_unregister( ... )
/proc/system_call_list

ioctl_register( ... )
ioctl_unregister( .... )
/proc/ioctl_list
Then strace and mec-trace could read the lists via the /proc files
and would not need their own tables that go out of date all the time.
