x86: auditsyscall: fix fastpath return value after reschedule

In the CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL fast-path for x86 64-bit system calls,
we can pass a bad return value and/or error indication for the
system call to audit_syscall_exit().  This happens when
TIF_NEED_RESCHED was set as the system call returned, so we went
out to schedule() and came back to the exit-audit fast-path.  The
fix is to reload the user return value register from the pt_regs
before using it for audit_syscall_exit().

Both the 32-bit kernel's fast path and the 64-bit kernel's 32-bit
system call fast paths work slightly differently, so that they
always leave the fast path entirely to reschedule and don't return
there, so they don't have the analogous bugs.
