Actually we can add a few more entries here which have 64-bit variants.

Thx. I'll repost this after things settle at bit.

Right. The generic code needs a bit more work to eliminate the redefines altogether.

1. Following is not needed

-#define __NR_clock_adjtime     __NR_clock_adjtime64
-#define __NR_sched_rr_get_interval     __NR_sched_rr_get_interval_time64
-#define __NR_mq_timedreceive   __NR_mq_timedreceive_time64
-#define __NR_mq_timedsend      __NR_mq_timedsend_time64
-#define __NR_timerfd_gettime   __NR_timerfd_gettime64
-#define __NR_timerfd_settime   __NR_timerfd_settime64

2. The minimum list needed for ARC (with annotations as to which generic file
needs fixing).

/* Fix sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/clock_getcpuclockid.c.  */
#define __NR_clock_getres      __NR_clock_getres_time64
/* Fix sysdeps/nptl/lowlevellock-futex.h.  */
#define __NR_futex             __NR_futex_time64
/* Fix sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/pause.c.  */
#define __NR_ppoll             __NR_ppoll_time64
/* Fix sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/select.c.  */
#define __NR_pselect6          __NR_pselect6_time64
/* Fix sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/recvmmsg.c.  */
#define __NR_recvmmsg          __NR_recvmmsg_time64
/* Fix sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/sigtimedwait.c.  */
#define __NR_rt_sigtimedwait   __NR_rt_sigtimedwait_time64
/* Fix sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/semtimedop.c.  */
#define __NR_semtimedop                __NR_semtimedop_time64
/* Hack sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/generic/utimes.c (need linux/utimes.c).  */
#define __NR_utimensat         __NR_utimensat_time64

IMO the cleanup applies to new ABIs too as generic code should handle those cases
w/o these workarounds. But that would delay things further for new ports so I
suggest we keep the workarounds and clean things up going fwd.

BTW, if one were to actually go about fixing those, whats the best approach.
Consider the simplest case pause(). For !__NR_pause do we replicate the code for
ppoll/ppoll64 handling or simply just call ppoll(). Later has a function call
overhead) ? Or there is a paradigm to use __syscallxxx_helper() although that
still has a function call overhead.

Actually the pause case is really simple as there are no args, so just redefine
__NR_xxx trick should suffice w/o going into all the explicit
interworking/conversion etc.

__libc_pause (void)
{
#ifdef __NR_pause
  return SYSCALL_CANCEL (pause);
#else

  return SYSCALL_CANCEL (ppoll, NULL, 0, NULL, NULL);
#endif

I open-coded the 2 calls to SYS_ify() in ARC code and deleted SYS_ify()...

... and 2 hrs later, after mysterious build failures, find that SYS_ify() needs to
be retained (even if not used in ARC port) it is expected/used by generic
make-syscalls.h :-(
