Hi Alexander,

I don't see any reason to keep the old syscall way. It is interesting to 
use the abstract layer at that place too (with greater portability of 
the debug layer in mind).

Thanks, I'll commit it today.

BTW, New ports are always really welcome for our hall of fame. ;-) So 
please send. :-)
