Subject[PATCH 10/11] x86_64: Dont do syscall exit tracing twice
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------
From: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de>

This fixes a regression from the earlier DOS fix for non canonical
IRET addresses. It broke UML.

int_ret_from_syscall already does syscall exit tracing, so
no need to do it again in the caller.

This caused problems for UML and some other special programs doing
syscall interception.
