Subject[PATCH] sysctl: Scream if someone uses sys_sysctl
Date

As far as I can tell we never use sys_sysctl so I never expect to see
these messages. But if we do see these it means that there are user
space applications that need to be fixed before we can safely
remove sys_sysctl.

Since this patch was trivial I just wipped up this incremental
version. The code compiles is all I know.
