FWIW, you can add

There are several places listed below where I'd prefer to see more readable
equivalents, but feel free to leave it to respective arch maintainers.

A shorter and slightly more readable equivalent is

memcpy(args, &regs->r00, 6 * sizeof(args[0]));

A shorter and slightly more readable equivalent of the last memcpy is

memcpy(args, &regs->uregs[1], 5 * sizeof(args[0]));

A shorter and slightly more readable equivalent of the loop is

while (--n)
args[n] = regs->gpr[3 + n] & mask;
args[0] = regs->orig_gpr3 & mask;

A shorter and slightly more readable equivalent of the loop is

while (--n > 0)
args[n] = regs->gprs[2 + n] & mask;
