I think a better interface would be to specify a syscall by its name,
a string, not its number.  The target-side code will then do TRT with
the string; the Linux target will convert that to a number and use
that (and probably all other Posix platforms will do that as well).
Higher-level GDB code, such as breakpoint.c, should never be exposed
to the fact that a syscall is identified by a number.

Unfortunately, I don't have nearly enough time to work on this.  Which
makes my arguments much less convincing, I know.
