    Subject[PATCH 0/6] tracing: add compat syscall support
    Hi,

    This series adds 'compat' syscall tracing support, and updates x86_64 to use
    this new functionality. Other arches still need to be implemented.

    To provide arch support 3 interfaces need to be defined:
    1) int is_compat_task(void);
    - most arches seem to have this already
    2) unsigned long arch_compat_syscall_addr(int nr);
    - returns a pointer to the compat syscall entry corresponding to syscall 'nr'
    3) int NR_syscalls_compat;
    - number of entries in the compat syscall table.

    Patches #1 and #2 in the series, implement the "NR_syscalls_compat" and the
    "arch_compat_syscall_addr()" for x86.

    Patches #3 and #4 add the necessary 'core' support for compat syscalls to the
    event tracing code.

    Finally, patches #5 and #6 convert 28 x86 compat syscalls to use the
    'DEFINE_SYSCALL' macros, which is necessary for syscall tracing.

    thanks,

    -Jason
