1) syscall returns 32-bit value:
	r2 = rv[0];
	r3 = rv[1];
	r3 is irrelevant here (ABI: "32-bit values returned in r2")

2) syscall returns 64-bit value:
	MI code uses something like
	*(int64_t *)rv = xxx, so I have to do
	r2 = rv[0];
	r3 = rv[1];
	ABI says "long long shall be returned with the lower
	addressed half in r2 and the higher in r3"

3) syscall folded into __syscall returns 32-bit value (e.g. mmap):
	MI code does usual
	r[0] = xxx;
	svc (syscall) handler does
	r2 = rv[0];
	r3 = rv[1]; /* zeroed before */
	then mmap wrapper in userspace casts this 64-bit to 32-bit
	(loads r2 with r3 really) and always gets 0.

So to make it consistent I have to know size of returned value for every 
syscall and for case 3 do {r3 = rv[0]; r2 = rv[1]}.
