The three members uptr, aname and refcnt are only used when
CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL, a fact which is not obvious from the header file
or namei.c alone. So aside from eliminating a few useless instructions
in getname_flags and making EMBEDDED_NAME_MAX a little larger, this
patch also serves to document whoe the actual user of these members
is.
