[PATCH v5 1/7] mips: add __NR_syscalls along with __NR_Linux_syscalls

From: Firoz Khan
Date: Thu Dec 13 2018 - 04:08:25 EST

__NR_Linux_syscalls macro holds the number of system call
exist in mips architecture. We have to change the value of
__NR_Linux_syscalls, if we add or delete a system call.

One of the patch in this patch series has a script which
will generate a uapi header based on syscall.tbl file.
The syscall.tbl file contains the total number of system
calls information. So we have two option to update __NR-
_Linux_syscalls value.

1. Update __NR_Linux_syscalls in asm/unistd.h manually
by counting the no.of system calls. No need to update
__NR_Linux_syscalls until we either add a new system
call or delete existing system call.

2. We can keep this feature it above mentioned script,
that will count the number of syscalls and keep it in
a generated file. In this case we don't need to expli-
citly update __NR_Linux_syscalls in asm/unistd.h file.

The 2nd option will be the recommended one. For that, I
added the __NR_syscalls macro in uapi/asm/unistd.h along
with __NR_Linux_syscalls. The macro __NR_syscalls also
added for making the name convention same across all
architecture. While __NR_syscalls isn't strictly part of
the uapi, having it as part of the generated header to
simplifies the implementation. We also need to enclose
this macro with #ifdef __KERNEL__ to avoid side effects.
