I missed in your review the comment on the header cleanup - and agree 
with it. So, let's wait for now on that before adding the header.

Btw. regarding adding the syscall, I see in linux/syscalls.list already 
similiar esoteric syscalls like create_module without any header 
support. I wouldn't object to do this for kexec_load as well,
