It should now be temporarily fixed for the defconfig
(CONFIG_AUTIDSYSCALL disabled). I'm reluctant to merge the audit tree in
the arm64 tree as (a) I haven't seen a confirmation that this branch is
stable and will go upstream as is and (b) there are x86 changes without
Acks from the x86 maintainers (whether needed or not, I can't say).

So my temporary patch is some #ifndef's around the offending code. It
will be reverted and your patch applied once the audit tree meets the
arm64 tree.
