I don't know if anyone cares, but include/linux/audit.h tries to expose
this type of information so audit userspace can later piece things back
together.  (we get this info from the syscall entry exit code so we know
which arch it is).

Not sure how x32 is hoping to expose its syscall info, but others are
going to have the same/similar problem.
