[PATCH 1/2] Audit: break up execve arguments into multiple records



Break the auditing of execve arguments into smaller records if there are
a lot.  Currently the limit is 32k if audit is on (intended to fit in a
single netlink message) but userspace actually has trouble a little over
8k.  This patch takes long argument lists and just emits them in
sequential records.  We log all of them and userspace is happy!  It also
means we don't need as much kernel memory to hold the buffer while we
build that one huge record.
