x86-64: fix int $0x80 -ENOSYS return

One of my past fixes to this code introduced a different new bug.
When using 32-bit "int $0x80" entry for a bogus syscall number,
the return value is not correctly set to -ENOSYS.  This only happens
when neither syscall-audit nor syscall tracing is enabled (i.e., never
seen if auditd ever started).  Test program:

	/* gcc -o int80-badsys -m32 -g int80-badsys.c
	   Run on x86-64 kernel.
	   Note to reproduce the bug you need auditd never to have started.  */

	#include <errno.h>
	#include <stdio.h>

	main (void)
	  long res;
	  asm ("int $0x80" : "=a" (res) : "0" (99999));
	  printf ("bad syscall returns %ld\n", res);
	  return res != -ENOSYS;

The fix makes the int $0x80 path match the sysenter and syscall paths.
