Better?  Maybe, maybe not.  But what I did in a similar case (an
emulator that emulated just userland, handling directly anything that
traps to the kernel on real hardware) was to `implement' any
unimplemented syscalls with code that just prints a message and
terminates.  Here, that would map into unimplemented syscalls
printing/logging something and killing the process.

Obviously, that code would not survive into the end result, but
something like it might be a useful intermediate step.
