    x86: Generate system call tables and unistd_*.h from tables

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?


Not off the top of my head. I will try to reproduce this and see what the problem is. Dmitry, what version of binutils and gcc are you using? It could be that there is a toolchain problem.
