Such an extension is definitely useful.  The only drawback is that
someone would have to update linux/*/syscallent*.h files.  For some
syscalls, e.g. indirect_ipccall syscalls like msgrcv(2), and syscalls
with "long long" arguments where printllval() is used to print them,
even the number of arguments differ from one architecture to another.
