    Some architectures don't use socketcall, so they use a separate syscall.
    IIRC, powerpc is migrating away from socketcall (commit
    86250b9d12caa1a3dee12a7cf638b7dd70eaadb6, "powerpc: Wire up direct
    socket system calls"), hence they added a separate call for it.

    We never had it.

    BTW, we have a hole at 218/219. I don't remember why, but it may have been
    a placeholder for pselect6 and ppoll when that implementation was still in flux.
    Couldn't find anything about it in git/cvs archives, so I'll check
    have to check my
    old mailing list archives...

    when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
