I think this should simply be

136 32 personality sys_personality ppc64_personality
136 64 personality ppc64_personality

Keeping the contents exactly the same as you have them
in the separate .tbl files, just merging the two files, and
splitting out the differences as 32/64 ABI.

This is a good question. The only difference between SPU and
native 64-bit is that some syscalls are not part of the SPU table
because those syscalls are impossible to implement on SPU.

Maybe we can solve this by allowing multiple comma-separated
ABIs in the table. On powerpc, 'common' would then mean
'32-bit, 64-bit and spu', while you could have various other
combinations:

/* always:32, 64 and SPU */
1 common exit sys_exit

/* 32-bit only call */
76 32 getrlimit sys_old_getrlimit compat_sys_old_getrlimit

/* 64-bit only, no SPU */
363 64 switch_endian sys_switch_endian

/* 32-bit and 64-bit, no SPU */
198 32,64 pciconfig_read sys_pciconfig_read

/* different pointers */
136 32 personality sys_personality ppc64_personality
136 64,spu personality ppc64_personality

Would that work for you?
