OK I understand that redef could get messy. How about simple #undef of the 32-bit
syscalls so they are not available in general and rely on generic code to fallback
and DRT.

Do note that this is mostly a "preventive" fix (for single exception see below)
and new arches will hopefully not trip here as they won't have the 32-bit syscalls
to begin with. It is applicable to arches with slightly older version of the
asm-generic ABI. And for same reasons I can even move those into ARC sysdep.h -
what would you recommend.

FWIW the only relevant piece here is futex which generic lll code expects
__NR_futex and we need to undef/redef to 64-bit variant (either here or in ARCH
specific sysdep.h for RV32 and ARC) so having that part atleast in generic code
will help future ports avoid the copy/paste.
