Interesting. I just munged the old pre-merge

  arch/x86/kernel/syscall_table_32.S

and the new

  arch/x86/syscalls/syscall_32.tbl

with some trivial shell scripting, and they are definitely identical.

So the tables look like they match 1:1.

The compat tables match too, except the new list contains the entry
for bdflush (134), but that's a legacy thing that doesn't matter.

I wonder what else could be going on. Wrong number of system calls
check? Peter, any ideas?
