If the

/* Zero-extending 32-bit regs, do not remove */
movl    %eax, %eax

comments are to be believed, then the entry logic needs reordering
slightly to:

    movl    %eax, %eax    /* Zero-extending 32-bit regs, do not remove */
    pushq    %rax                /* pt_regs->orig_ax */


(It is unfortunate this can't be simplified to pushq %eax)
