Heh. I knew there had to be patch out there. I saw some other older ones
for specific syscalls, but never saw yours in my searching.

Looks pretty close to what I've been using but doesn't seem to have
generated much interest. I missed the no_cancel bits, but I figured
there would be such things broken in my patch too.

So, is there any other concerns besides the cancellation? I saw some
concern about bloat, but if the approach is to use the noat syscalls
if they exist, it shouldn't bloat ports using older kernels.
