This is the first of a series of 7 invasive patches for the -mm tree, which are to be reviewed (not only by UML folks), and possibly merged for the 2.6.13 cycle.

The first one splits the i386 syscall table out of entry.S, without any real change for them (the file is included in the old place); if there are any syscall table changes, please be careful; this maybe means place *this* one before the others (or even merge now the i386 code movement part); I don't want that this patch is modified and that subtle bugs are introduced. The code movement is a really trivial code movement, however (no hidden changes).

This is needed to enable us to include the i386 syscall table, so that we are sure that they match. I already handled the real differences between i386 and UML (see the patch).
I love this idea and it fits well to UML/s390, where syscall table already
lives in a separate source.
As change and grow of syscall tables is not really coordinated between different
arches, this change will simplify maintenance of UML-subarches a lot.
