This adds a compat syscall for 32-bit tasks running on arm64 without adding
the same for the native arch/arm syscall table. Those two need to always
stay synchronized. In fact, new system call should ideally get assigned
on all architectures at the same time, with the same number (or +110
on arch/alpha).
