yes, I've been wondering about the same thing...I think the answer is
that DEFINE_SYSCALLx() is used to define some of the 'compat' layer ia32
syscalls. Thus, they show up as events to register but they are not in
the syscall table. I'm not sure if its easy to handle these at compile
time, but in any case that is where this case is coming from...

I've also notice that I forgot to define the meta data for
SYSCALL_DEFINE0 case...

thanks,
