Subject[PATCH v11 04/12] asm/syscall.h: add syscall_get_arch
Date
Adds a stub for a function that will return the AUDIT_ARCH_*
value appropriate to the supplied task based on the system
call convention.

For audit's use, the value can generally be hard-coded at the
audit-site. However, for other functionality not inlined into
syscall entry/exit, this makes that information available.
seccomp_filter is the first planned consumer and, as such,
the comment indicates a tie to HAVE_ARCH_SECCOMP_FILTER. That
is probably an unneeded detail.

Suggested-by: Roland McGrath <mcgrathr@chromium.org>
Signed-off-by: Will Drewry <wad@chromium.org>

v11: fixed improper return type (mcgrathr@chromium.org)
v10: introduced
