I doubt the compiler will do what you want.
Looking at it, in most cases there are one or two entries.
I think only MIPS has three.

So a static inline function that contains a list of
conditionals will generate better code that any kind of
array lookup.
For x86-64 you end up with something like:

if (sd->arch == AUDIT_ARCH_I386) return xxx;
return yyy;

Probably saves you having multiple arrays that need to be
kept carefully in step.
