I just moved the RSBAC syscalls to start from 300, to give more room. 
Actually, there is no problem in moving them further up to e.g. 400 (like in 
alpha arch) - just a slightly larger syscall table.

That would be a lot of work... You know that I already packed a lot of 
subcalls into some of the existing calls, e.g. rsbac_acl.

It is ugly, if you have several kernel versions installed. And you already 
complained about unnecessary binaries...
