Subject: [PATCH] arm64: audit: fix return value high 32bit truncation problem

From: weiyuchen <weiyuchen3@...wei.com>

Add error code judgment in invoke_syscall() to prevent kernel
components such as audit and tracepoint from obtaining incorrect
return values. For example:

type=SYSCALL msg=audit(342.780:69): arch=40000028 syscall=235
success=yes exit=4294967235

The syscall return value is -61, but due to the following process in
invoke_syscall():

	if (is_compat_task())
		ret = lower_32_bits(ret);
	regs->regs[0] = ret;

The return value audit or tracepoint get from regs[0] is 4294967235,
which is an incorrect return value.
