/*
* Reload arg registers from stack in case ptrace changed them.
* We don't reload %eax because syscall_trace_enter() returned
- * the value it wants us to use in the table lookup.
+ * the %rax value we should see. Instead, we just truncate that
+ * value to 32 bits again as we did on entry from user mode.
+ * If it's a new value set by user_regset during entry tracing,
+ * this matches the normal truncation of the user-mode value.
+ * If it's -1 to make us punt the syscall, then (u32)-1 is still
+ * an appropriately invalid value.
