SubjectRe: [patch] Assigning syscall numbers for testing

Simple brutal and to the point. Also it means a dynamic library can
switch to real syscalls and dynamic apps will migrate fine.

One request - can we specify a namespace of the form

['vendorid'].[call]

vendorid is the wrong phrase but "some sane way of knowing whose syscall
it is" - it would be bad for andrea-aio and ben-aio to use the same names..
