This definition is problematic on 32-bit architectures for two

- 64-bit register arguments are passed in pairs of registers
  on two architectures, so anything passing those needs to
  have a separate entry point for compat syscalls on 64-bit
  architectures. I would suggest also using the same one on
  32-bit ones, so you don't rely on the compiler splitting
  up the long arguments into pairs.

- There is a limit of six argument registers for system call
  entry points, but with two pairs and three single registers
  you end up with seven of them.

The listmnt syscall in patch 3 also has the first problem,
but not the second.
