Adds a stub for a function that will return the AUDIT_ARCH_* value

For audit's use, the value can generally be hard-coded at the
audit-site.  However, for other functionality not inlined into syscall
entry/exit, this makes that information available.  seccomp_filter is
the first planned consumer and, as such, the comment indicates a tie to
