Here, we have syscall() with first argument being the system call number
- so what you suggested is not correct.

But, yes, the synopsis should change at some time. Maybe to something

#include <fcntl.h>

long fallocate(int fd, int mode, loff_t offset, loff_t len);

Will add following errors:

EINTR A signal was caught during execution
EIO An I/O error occurred while reading from or writing to
a file system.
EOPNOTSUPP The mode is not supported on the file descriptor.

and will update following :

EINVAL offset was less than 0, or len was less than or equal to 0.
