Subject[tip:x86/asm] x86/entry64: Remove unused audit related macros

x86/entry64: Remove unused audit related macros

These macros were added in the following commit:

86a1c34a929f ("x86_64 syscall audit fast-path")

They were used in two-phase sycalls entry tracing, but this functionality
was then moved to the arch/x86/entry/common.c:syscall_trace_enter() function,
in the following commit:

1f484aa69046 ("x86/entry: Move C entry and exit code to arch/x86/entry/common.c")

syscall_trace_enter() now uses the defines from <linux/audit.h>,
so these defines entry_64.S are no longer used anywhere.
