We only recently introduced syscall.tbl files in a common format,
which makes it much easier to add new ones. I hope we can
do it for all architectures right away from now on.

I just noticed that the new mount API assigns six new system
calls as well, but did not use the same numbers across
architectures. I hope we can still rectify that before -rc1
and use the next available ones (428..433), then yours should
be 434 on all architectures, with the exception of arch/alpha.
