Bad Address when adding system call

Hi guys.

I have downloaded kernel 2.6.38-5 to add a system call.
I did the following steps:

1. I have added my system call to system call table
<src folder>/arc/x86/kernel/syscall_table_32.S

.long sys_mycall
2. i have added the system cal number in
<src folder>/include/asm-generic/unistd.h

#define __NR_mycall 244
__SYSCALL(__NR_mycall, sys_mycall)
3. I have added the prototype to syscalls.h
<src follder>/include/linux/syscalls.h

asmlinkage long sys_mycall(long input);
4. here is my system call
asmlinkage long sys_mycall(long input)

    return (input * 2); 

5. I have edited the Makfiles too.

Now after compilation when i use it via syscall() it gives me "BAD ADDRESS" with errno set to 14.

What should i do?
Best Regards
