Yes, we must have missed it.  Fixed now, thanks.

This new SEN stuff was introduced to replace comparisons between function
pointers with comparisons with integer constants known at compile time.

This is especially important for implementing new multiple personality
support that introduces different sys_func handlers for different
personalities (for some syscalls).

The -stub.h files are needed to show different mips abi syscalls,
so the new SEN stuff cannot make them obsolete.
