I tried my best to make things simpler. I also tried this in :-
[PATCH 17/22] sh: Introducing asm/syscalls.h
[PATCH 21/22] x86: Introducing asm/syscalls.h

For same architecture it looks complex for 32 and 64 bit.

You can Imagine how linux/syscalls.h will look if we add all
architectures in it.

And you can imagine what will be size of linux/syscalls.h. As more than
60% of arch dependent syscalls have totally different prototypes.

Thank you,

Jaswinder Singh.
