Glad to see syscall_get_arch() added to the remaining arches.  As Paul
said, it gets us closer to auditing syscalls on those remaining
unsupported arches and getting rid of the extra CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL.
A little ironic that Eric (Paris) and I purged task_struct from
syscall_get_arch() 5 years ago since everything could use current.

ACK.

Thanks Dmitry.
