Ok, I wired the system call up on s390 and the test case passed.
Below is the patch that is needed to actually reach the system call from
other architectures than x86.
Andrew, can you pick this one up as well?

The code that wires the system call up on s390 will go upstream via the
s390 tree. Thanks to kcmp being a cond_syscall there is no compile
time dependency.

Subject: [PATCH] syscalls: make kcmp syscall available for all architectures

Remove the x86 dependency, since the system call is not
architecture dependend.

Also add a ptrace.h include, so it compiles at least also on s390.
