Subject: [PATCH 0/3] [RFC] X32: fix syscall_get_nr while not breaking seccomp BPF

This set reverts commit 8b4b9f2 which broke audit and potentially other users
of syscall_get_nr() which depend on that call as named without being overloaded
by architecture bits.  It will satisfy other regular users of syscall_get_nr()
and syscall_get_arch() without changing the seccomp interface to BPF.

A new ARCH definition, AUDIT_ARCH_X86_X32, was added for syscall_get_arch().
