/* This is the entry point for making a system call. The calling
* convention here is that of a C varargs function with the
* first argument an 'int *' to the signal_pending flag, the
* second one the system call number (as a 'long'), and all further
* arguments being syscall arguments (also 'long').
* We return a long which is the syscall's return value, which
* may be negative-errno on failure. Conversion to the
* -1-and-errno-set convention is done by the calling wrapper.

/* The syscall calling convention isn't the same as the C one:
* we enter with r0 == *signal_pending
* r1 == syscall number
* r2, r3, [sp+0] ... [sp+12] == syscall arguments
* and return the result in r0
* and the syscall instruction needs
* r7 == syscall number
* r0 ... r6 == syscall arguments
* and returns the result in r0
* Shuffle everything around appropriately.
* Note the 16 bytes that we pushed to save registers.

/* This next sequence of code works in conjunction with the
* rewind_if_safe_syscall_function(). If a signal is taken
* and the interrupted PC is anywhere between 'safe_syscall_start'
* and 'safe_syscall_end' then we rewind it to 'safe_syscall_start'.
* The code sequence must therefore be able to cope with this, and
* the syscall instruction must be the final one in the sequence.
