[ 17/52] ARM: 7412/1: audit: use only AUDIT_ARCH_ARM regardless of endianness

From: Greg KH
Date: Thu May 10 2012 - 13:47:00 EST

3.3-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Will Deacon <will.deacon@xxxxxxx>

commit 2f978366984a418f38fcf44137be1fbc5a89cfd9 upstream.

The machine endianness has no direct correspondence to the syscall ABI,
so use only AUDIT_ARCH_ARM when identifying the ABI to the audit tools
in userspace.
