There's no point in adding syscalls to syscalls.list without at least 
adding a symbol version so the function is actually exported from libc.so. 

Note that in the kexec_load discussion last May / June, doubts were 
expressed about whether some existing module-related syscalls really 
should have had functions in glibc.
