An earlier change Roland had prodded me toward was adding a
syscall_get_arch() call to asm/syscall.h which returned the
appropriate audit arch value for the current calling convention.  I
hate to suggest this, but should I go ahead and wire that up for x86
now, make it a dependency for HAVE_ARCH_SECCOMP_FILTER (and officially
part of asm/syscall.h) then let it trickle into existence?  Maybe
something like:

static inline int syscall_get_arch(struct task_struct *task, struct
pt_regs *regs)
  if (task_thread_info(task)->status & TS_COMPAT)
    return AUDIT_ARCH_I386;
#ifdef CONFIG_64BIT
  return AUDIT_ARCH_X86_64;
  return AUDIT_ARCH_I386;

There would be no other callers, though, because everywhere AUDIT_ARCH
is used it is hardcoded as appropriate.  Then when x32 comes along, it
can figure out where it belongs using tif status and/or regs.

I'm not sure what the appropriate way to add things to asm/syscall.h,
but I can certainly do a first cut in the x86 version.
