Yes, we can do that way also.As I mentioned, it will add
more complexity in the script.

The script has to be smart enough to parse the
.tbl if we add more thing in the .tble file. It need more
logic in the scripts. This is not common. So if you keep
separate .tbl we can avoid this.

ABI flag is serving *nothing* in all other architecture including

But as I told in the cover letter, I followed x86/arm/
s390 architecture's system table generation implementation.
They are keeping ABI flag. In our case we can delete this
flag completely from all architectures.

Most of the architecture these 32/64 similarity is absent.
So it would be better keep separate files to maintain a
generic script across all architecture.

Hmm. Let me have a look where things went wrong.

As I mentioned in the cover letter:
"I started working system call table generation on 4.17-rc1. I used
marcin's script - to generate
the syscall.tbl file. And this will be the input to the system call
table generation script. But there are couple system call got add
in the latest rc release. If run Marcin's script on latest release,
It will generate a new syscall.tbl. But I still use the old file -
syscall.tbl and once all review got over I'll update syscall.tbl
alone the tip of the kernel. The impact of this thing, few
of the system call won't work."

Hopefully, the next version does have this change. Thanks!
