Subject: [PATCH, resend] x86-64: fix register leak in 32-bit syscall
	 audting

Restoring %ebp after the call to audit_syscall_exit() is not only
unnecessary (because the register didn't get clobbered), but in the
sysenter case wasn't even doing the right thing: It loaded %ebp from a
location below the top of stack (RBP < ARGOFFSET), i.e. arbitrary
kernel data got passed back to user mode in the register.
