This code from internal/syscall/unix/getrandom_linux.go:
currently compiles into non-trivial chunk of code. However, gc could instead recognize that runtime.GOARCH and all of the map literal keys are constants and that all of the value expressions are side-effect free, and fold to just the corresponding value expression.
It looks like changing the code to:
produces simpler code by taking advantage of the existing switch constant folding logic, but still needs a dynamic initializer.
Alternatively, we could just create 4 extra files and use +build rules. (This is my preference if no one's opposed.)
While here, enable getrandom on arm64 too (using the value found in include/uapi/asm-generic/unistd.h, which seems to match up with other GOARCH=arm64 syscall numbers). Updates #10848.

Indeed. That map thing is a terrible idiom and should not be encouraged.
