[PATCH] fix audit_rule_syscallbyname()


The audit_rule_syscallbyname() function in libaudit currently doesn't
work for any system calls other than "all".  This is because it
depends on a previous setting of the audit_elf global variable.

This has been unnoticed so far because auditctl defines an audit_elf
global and sets it before calling this routine.

Arguably, libaudit shouldn't be using a global this way, but this
patch fixes the immediate problem.
