The patch looks correct to me, and is a nice cleanup, but I found a
couple of things remaining that could be done slightly better.

I suppose these can simply get removed, there are no users of NR_syscalls
in MIPS kernels.

Here I would drop the '-1' and instead replace the '<=' with '<' for
better readability

This is also unused as of commit 2957c9e61ee9 ("[MIPS] IRIX: Goodbye and
thanks for all the fish"), eight years ago, so I'd remove this as well.

I'd suggest doing one patch for the removal of the unused macros, and another
patch for the other changes.
