Can you explain in more detail why you want to add those macros? I've
looked at all three patches in the series but can't find any code using

I would expect that we don't need to define those macros at all for
compat mode, since they are meant primarily for user space (glibc)
compilation, which gets them from arch/arm/include/asm/unistd.h.
