Not really - other than the fact that I'm reluctant to reserve syscall
numbers for something that might never make it into the kernel so
usually i386 reserving a syscall is what convinces me ...

Due to the three support ABIs you actually get 3 syscall numbers even.
o32 gets 277, N64 236 and N32 240.  Patch is below.
