    SubjectRe: [PATCH] Add key management syscalls to non-i386 archs

    David, I applaud your effort to take care of this.
    However, this patch will conflict with what I've
    sent into Linus already for Sparc. I also had to
    add the sys_altroot syscall entry as well.

    I've mentioned several times that perhaps the best
    way to deal with this problem is to purposefully
    break the build of platforms when new system calls
    are added.

    Simply adding a:

    #error new syscall entries for X and Y needed

    to include/asm-*/unistd.h would handle this just
    fine I think.

    That way it won't be missed, and if the platform
    maintainer wants to just ignore the new syscall
    they can choose to do that as well.
