Subject[PATCH 1/3] mips: Add __NR_syscalls macro in uapi/asm/unistd.h
Date
NR_syscalls macro holds the number of system call exist in MIPS
architecture. This macro is currently not a part of uapi/asm/unistd.h
file. The purpose of this macro is We have to change the value of
NR_syscalls, if we add or delete a system call.

One of the patch in this patch series has a script which will generate
a uapi header based on syscall.tbl file. The syscall.tbl file contains
the number of system call information. So we have two option to update
NR_syscalls value.

1. Update NR_syscalls in uapi/asm/unistd.h manually by counting the
no.of system calls. No need to update NR_syscalls until we either
add a new system call or delete an existing system call.

2. We can keep this feature it above mentioned script, that'll
count the number of syscalls and keep it in a generated file.
In this case we don't need to explicitly update NR_syscalls
in asm/unistd.h file.

The 2nd option will be the recommended one. While __NR_syscalls
isn't strictly part of the uapi, having it as part of the generated
header to simplifies the implementation.
