/* 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.

* 8(%esp) == syscall number
* 12(%esp) ... 32(%esp) == syscall arguments
* and return the result in eax
* and the syscall instruction needs
* eax == syscall number
* ebx, ecx, edx, esi, edi, ebp == syscall arguments
* and returns the result in eax
* Shuffle everything around appropriately.
* Note the 16 bytes that we pushed to save registers.

* The code sequence must therefore be able to cope with this, and
* the syscall instruction must be the final one in the sequence.
