Apart from the syscall numbering, it is surprisingly consistent.
For e.g. x86 about 190 out of 300/340 system calls are the same,
so about 2/3. The 1/3 that are different are mostly 32-bit only
variants of systemcalls, or obsolete ones. So for the syscall
arguments actually checked, the number is much higher.

Different argument ordering for the same syscall between archs
is very rare.
