I don't get this one -- I'm not playing with NR_syscall here.

Why so? Does anyone actually use x32 in a container? The memory cost
and analysis cost is on everyone. The worst case scenario if we don't
support it is that the syscall is not accelerated.

You have a good point regarding tests. Don't see how it affects
regressions though. Only one file here is ever included per-build.
