kernel/audit.c: avoid negative sleep durations

audit_log_start() performs the same jiffies comparison in two places.
If sufficient time has elapsed between the two comparisons, the second
one produces a negative sleep duration:

  schedule_timeout: wrong timeout value fffffffffffffff0
  Pid: 6606, comm: trinity-child1 Not tainted 3.8.0-rc1+ #43
  Call Trace:
    schedule_timeout+0x305/0x340
    audit_log_start+0x311/0x470
    audit_log_exit+0x4b/0xfb0
    __audit_syscall_exit+0x25f/0x2c0
    sysret_audit+0x17/0x21

Fix it by performing the comparison a single time.
