You don't mention how this handles the SPU, which seems to be the main
difference from the other architectures.

The SPU syscall is always the same as the 64-bit syscall, so listing it
explictily in the last column seems to add a lot of duplication, and
makes the format different from the other architectures.

Have you considered using the <abi> field (second column) to decide whether
a syscall is used for SPU or not instead?

I would have done it like

|+0 nospu restart_syscall sys_restart_syscall
sys_restart_syscall
|+1 nospu exit sys_exit
sys_exit
|+2 nospu fork ppc_fork
ppc_fork
|+3 common read sys_read
sys_read
|+4 common write sys_write
sys_write
|+5 common open sys_open
compat_sys_open
|+6 common close sys_close
sys_close
...
|+291 32 fstatat64 sys_fstatat64
sys_fstatat64
|+291 64 newfstatat sys_newfstatat
|+291 spu newfstatat sys_newfstatat
...

with 'nospu' meaning 64+32+compat.

'oldstat' seems odd. Your conversion is correct, but the existing
behavior of not
providing support for the syscall in compat mode feels wrong. We have four
calls in this category:

arch/powerpc/include/asm/systbl.h:OLDSYS(stat)
arch/powerpc/include/asm/systbl.h:OLDSYS(fstat)
arch/powerpc/include/asm/systbl.h:OLDSYS(lstat)
arch/powerpc/include/asm/systbl.h:OLDSYS(debug_setcontext)

For the first three, it seems that the 64-bit kernel ought to set
'__ARCH_WANT_OLD_STAT':

For debug_setcontext(), I don't even know what that does, or whether the
omission was intentional, but it seems weird to have one missing syscall
in the emulation.

Note: for a future cleanup, I suppose we want to remove the '64' line
for this one and
others that simply refer to sys_ni_syscall. Your version keeps the
generated file
unchanged, so that that's great for now.

same here.

> +82 32 select ppc_select sys_ni_syscall
> +82 64 select sys_ni_syscall

This one again is like 'stat': it lacks a compat handler, which exists in
arch/powerpc/kernel/syscalls.c, but is disabled in ppc64/compat mode
for unknown reasons. In this case, it's been like that since the compat
mode was first added.

Can you explain what is going on here? As far as I can see, those
should all be 'common'.
