From: "Steven Rostedt (VMware)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

After removing the start and count arguments of syscall_get_arguments() it
seems reasonable to remove them from syscall_set_arguments(). Note, as of
today, there are no users of syscall_set_arguments(). But we are told that
there will be soon. But for now, at least make it consistent with
syscall_get_arguments().
