It indeed is generated from IDL. The function name is generated from the
IDL library (module) name(s), the interface name, the method name, and a
suffix to distinguish different functions generated for the same IDL
method. 'if_l4dm' is the library name; 'generic' the interface name;
'list' the method name; and 'call' suggests it is a client side call
function stub to call the server.
