Update __NR_Linux_syscalls in uapi/asm/unistd.h manually by counting the no.of system calls. No need to update __NR_Linux_syscalls until we either add a new system call or delete an existing system call.
We can keep this feature it above mentioned script, that will count the number of syscalls and keep it in a gener- ated file. In this case we don't need to explicitly update __NR_Linux_syscalls in asm/unistd.h file.
The 2nd option will be the recommended one. For that, I moved the __NR_Linux_syscalls macro from uapi/asm/unistd.h to asm/ unistd.h. The macro __NR_syscalls also added for making the name convention same across all architecture. While __NR_sys- calls isn't strictly part of the uapi, having it as part of the generated header to simplifies the implementation. We also need to enclose this macro with #ifdef __KERNEL__ to avoid side effects.

Hmm, now you have a __NR_Linux_syscalls macro that is defined in user space to a another macro that is not visible there. How about moving __NR_Linux_syscalls into arch/parisc/include/asm/unistd.h or replacing its users with __NR_syscalls instead?
