I think ppc32_select needs to stay. It never did the hack for
supporting the old_select calling conventions, but it does the
sign extension for the 32 bit arguments, which I think you still

In any way, both the 32 bit emulation and the native ppc32 code
path should do the same thing, which currently they don't.
