I mean

#ifdef CONFIG_PPC_BOOK3S_64
notrace unsigned long syscall_exit_prepare_scv(unsigned long r3,
struct pt_regs *regs,
long scv)
#else
static inline long syscall_exit_prepare_scv(unsigned long r3,
struct pt_regs *regs,
long scv)
#endif

#ifndef CONFIG_PPC_BOOK3S_64
notrace unsigned long syscall_exit_prepare(unsigned long r3,
struct pt_regs *regs)
{
return syscall_exit_prepare_scv(r3, regs, 0);
}
#endif

That scv arg is random. I know generated code essentially would be no
different and no possibility of tracing, but would just prefer to call
the C "correctly" if possible.

Yes 64e would like this optimisation.

Thanks,
Nick
