SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/6] alpha: Unify the not-implemented system call entry name

Umm... The thing is, alpha_ni_syscall should really be called
alpha_syscall_0. Its use for other not implemented syscalls in
OSF syscall numbers range is a historical accident.

What that thing does is, in addition usual return -ENOSYS, is
the opposite of force_successful_syscall_return().

On alpha the syscall number is passed in r0. So for every
real syscall we have non-zero current_pt_regs()->r0
and force_successful_syscall_return() simply assigns 0 to
that.

Return value goes in the same register; additionally, register #19
(a3) is left 0 on success and 1 on error. Normally it's controlled
by the sign of sys_something() return value (left in r0), but for
some syscalls we want to be able to tell the userland that the damn
thing has succeeded, negative result be damned.

The original value of r0 is left in pt_regs; it will be used only
in case of syscall restarts, i.e. *not* in "that's no error" case.
And it's non-zero on any real syscall, so it serves as a nice
available place for storing the "it's not an error" flag.

That works nicely, but leaves a bit of a twist in one case: if we
tried to issue syscall 0, we want it to return -ENOSYS and we want
that to be treated as an error, TYVM. That's where this trick
comes to bite - unlike the normal case, we have pt_regs->r0
containing zero, which would trigger the "that's no error" logics.

Since -ENOSYS is not a restart-triggering error, we don't need to
preserve the original value of pt_regs->r0 in this case either.
Solution:

alpha_ni_syscall:
make current_pt_regs()->r0 non-zero
return -ENOSYS

That's what the comment in
alpha_ni_syscall:
.prologue 0
/* Special because it also implements overflow handling via
syscall number 0. And if you recall, zero is a special
trigger for "not an error". Store large non-zero there. */
lda $0, -ENOSYS
unop
stq $0, 0($sp)
ret
is about.

Once upon a time it used to have a C part that printed a warning
about unimplemented OSF syscalls. That's what it's been doing
all over the OSF syscall range, while the native Linux syscall
range uses sys_ni_syscall().

With those warnings about unimplemented OSF syscalls gone (circa 2.4),
alpha_ni_syscall() has shrunk to that little bit of asm and the
only reason it hasn't been replaced with sys_ni_syscall() everywhere
is that extra twist needed in case of syscall #0.

Let's keep it only for syscall #0 and replace the rest with sys_ni_syscall.
And use sys_ni_syscall for "number out range" in ptraced-call case, as
we'd been doing for normal codepath since 2.1.86...
