I'd have to agree. I've just had my head deep in audit_syscall_entry()
and syscall_get_arch to clean them up. Since current is only ever fed
to syscall_get_arch() and regs is never used by syscall_get_arch(), I'm
looking at dropping both from the syscall_get_arch() args list, but
leave syscall_get_arch() as you have it for now.
