My plan here was to add new syscalls in the same order as everwhere else,
just with the number 110 higher. In the long run, I hope we can automate
this.

434 is already used in linux-next, I suggest you use 437 (Palmer
just submitted fchmodat4, which could become 436).

We can have system calls with up to six arguments on all architectures, so
this could still be done more conventionally without the indirection: like

long openat2(int dfd, const char __user * filename, int flags, mode_t
mode_mask, __u16 resolve);

In fact, that seems similar enough to the existing openat() that I think
you could also just add the fifth argument to the existing call when
a newly defined flag is set, similarly to how we only use the 'mode'
argument when O_CREAT or O_TMPFILE are set.

This file seems to lack a declaration for the system call, which means it
will cause a build failure on some architectures, e.g. arch/arc/kernel/sys.c:

#define __SYSCALL(nr, call) [nr] = (call),
void *sys_call_table[NR_syscalls] = {
[0 ... NR_syscalls-1] = sys_ni_syscall,
#include <asm/unistd.h>
};
