Oh, I agree, it's nasty.

But it's actually a nastiness that we've solved before. In particular,
with the system call mappings, which have pretty much the exact same
issue of "map unknown number of arguments to registers".

Yes, it's different - there you map the unknown number of arguments to
a structure access instead. And yes, the macros are unbelievably ugly.
See

arch/x86/include/asm/syscall_wrapper.h

and the __MAP() macro from

include/linux/syscalls.h

so it's not pretty. But it would solve all the problems.
