So Perhaps you can do:


And so the real availability of the syscall will be detected in
do_syscall1() based on a "#ifdef TARGET_XXXX" (well, not sure
syscall_nr.h differentiates O32 and N32)

By the way, do we really need this table?

It seems kernel is always copying 4 words from the stack.
But kernel code is not really clear, perhaps I'm missing something...

Yes, Laurent, we actually don't need that table. We could have just a series of preprocessor constants, like any other ABI, but it would have required larger code reorganization. It started that way long time ago, and nobody bothered to correct this, partially for sure because of fear of regressions.

I am not in the mood for refactoring this area of code right now in any substantial way, until the situation stabilizes with new syscalls. The current solution in this patch is good enough for me, and it is not that intrusive, which I like. Please accept it as is, and the time for refactoring will hopefully come at some later point of time.

I prefer several incremental smaller refactoring to one large one. I'll take into account all your suggestions and hints.

Thanks, Aleksandar
In the end, as you are the MIPS maintainer, you can choose the solution
you prefer.
