Not really beneficial for userspace at all. Don't expose it.

I'm a little dubious about touching all architectures at once.

It might be nicer to do a first patch which adds an _empty_
<asm/syscalls.h> on each platform, and includes that from
<linux/syscalls.h>. And then follow up with one patch per architecture.

Have you compile-tested them all?
