Why is this needed? The audit code is not supposed to look at the high bits
if the audited task is a compat task.
It does that at at least one place in kernel/auditsc.c:

	case 4: /* socketcall */
		return ((mask & AUDIT_PERM_WRITE) && ctx->argv[0] == SYS_BIND);

So does the audit code assume that the high bits are cleared or is this
a bug in the audit code?

Extended the cc list with a few people that recently worked on the audit code,
maybe somebody could answer my question above?
