Subject: [PATCH] compat_audit: allow it to work without asm/unistd32.h

For architectures that use the asm-generic syscall table for both
32- and 64-bit, there should be no need to provide a separate
<asm/unistd32.h>; just using <linux/unistd.h> is sufficient.
Conditionalize use of <asm/unistd32.h> on the one platform that
currently requires it (arm64).  If another platform ends up needing
it we can create a suitable config flag at that point.

This change fixes the tilegx build failure seen in linux-next.

Signed-off-by: Chris Metcalf <>
By the way - I also note that commit 223b24d807610 that introduced
this also put an "#ifdef COMPAT_xxx" in a UAPI header.  This seems
like a pretty clear signal that the added code should be in
linux/include/audit.h, not linux/uapi/include/audit.h.  But here
I'm just focussing on getting tilegx to continue to build...
