Why do you think this is necessary?

simple_strtoul() is part  of  the  generic  library  (implemented  in
lib_generic/vsprintf.c).  Any  standalone application that needs this
function can simply link against this library, so  I  don;t  see  the
benefit from calling this through the syscall interface.

Maybe I'm missing something?
