You are right, the use of 'common' here is unintentional but harmless,
and I should have used 'n64' here.
We may decide to do things differently in the future, i.e. we could
have just a single global file for newly added system calls once
it turns out that the tables are consistent across all architectures,
but I'd probably go on with the separate identical entries for a bit
before changing that.
