Allocating sys_membarrier syscall number on other archs

Hi Andrew,

The sys_membarrier patches you have in your tree target
x86 32-64 and generic, but I did not allocate the system call
number on other architectures to minimize the amount of
collisions, and because I do not have all those architectures

How would you recommend to proceed to allocate those ?

sys_membarrier is pretty much architecture agnostic: it
takes two integer parameters, and the only function it calls,
synchronize_sched(), is available on all architectures.
