I have added the below patch to linux-next from today.

These numbers are certainly not in any way official, they are just the
result of my merge conflict fixup.  So, yes, they could change again if
someone adds another new syscall to any tree but Andrew's.

Like Thomas said, send a patch to the x86 maintainers.  I suspect (if
the rest of the implementation needs to stay in Andrew's tree) that it
could be a simple as a patch to the syscall tables using ni_syscall and
a comment.  Thomas?
