SubjectRE: X32 project status update
The eventual goal is to merge it with the x86-64 syscall table, although we're still working out exactly where we can do it.

I've had another look at the kernel patch. It basically
looks all good, but the system call table appears to
diverge from the x86_64 list for no (documented) reason,
in the calls above 302. Is that intentional?

I can see why you might want to keep the numbers identical,
but if they are already different, why not use the generic
system call table from asm-generic/unistd.h for the new
ABI?
