I just pushed a clean copy of Linus' tree to my audit tree.  So my API
change is gone when he next pull for -next.  I'm on vacation this week
and really wanted to get it fixed right before I left.  It didn't
happen.  when I push a new tree into next I will pick up the arm audit
patch and fix the api in my tree.
