__NR_syscalls for kernel. So this macro is present in asm/unistd.h
rather than uapi/asm/unistd.h. As I mentioned in the patch, it would
be better to keep in uapi/asm/unistd.h to count the number of syscalls.
But this will create some side effect. So I was guarded with __KERNEL__.
In order to come up with common implementation, I kept this for all
architecture.

I'm not removing the __NR_syscall_count macro; just place it
in asm/unistd.h file for the above reason.

FYI, I made sure that the kernel will build with my patch. I would
appreciate if you can perform the boot test on the actual platform.

Thanks
