Can you explain in what way the ABI is inconsistent here?

I don't understand this: 0x49 is __NR_ppoll on arm64 and all architectures
that use asm-generic/unistd.h, not __NR_poll, which is no longer used there.

If this is intentional, it at least needs a comment to explain the
situation, and be extended to all other architectures that do not have
a poll() system call.

The arm32 version of sys_poll should be available as 168 in both native
and compat mode.
