My feeling is that instead of postprocessing the generated files,
it would be much better to make the elimination part of the
existing infrastructure that generates the files from syscall.tbl,
and finally change the include/asm-generic/unistd.h to the
same format, as we had planned for a long time.

I should be able to help out with that part.
