Because once there was support for othere "SysV-like" (indeed, actual
SysV) systems in glibc.
The point of this patch series relating to sysdeps/unix/sysv/syscalls.list
is to end up removing the file completely. I think two more patches after
the present one should do it (one for more syscalls that are overridden
for Linux, one to merge the remainder into
sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/syscalls.list). Then sysdeps/unix/sysv/ will
purely be a container for sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/, even if it's not worth
the disruption of actually removing the sysv/ directory level and using
