So I guess Brian's macro is more like "this is a 32-bit arch that
needs to split 64-bit syscall args but naively splitting them is
correct", which is true on x86_32 but not necessarily on arm.

Should we consider having a real program that runs as part of the
build generate the syscall wrappers? The logic involved is pushing
the bounds of C macro magic and human comprehension.
