I had no idea you were having build problems for so long!! I'm so
sorry! The tree got pulled from -next for a while because we ran into
some arm problems and I was going on vacation. So I pulled from -next.
It just went back into -next (after I dealt with arm). And so you saw
build failure again on the 25th.

I guess the choices are moving EM_OPENRISC public like the other ones
(which I believe you sent a patch for) or maybe you can include
arch/openrisc/include/uapi/asm/elf.h inside
arch/openrisc/include/asm/syscall.h so you still get to keep that
definition 'private'. I have no idea if such an include would give you
a circular mess. That happens all to often at the arch level.
