Please note that the audit daemon needs to start before any daemon if you want 
it to work right. There's a couple reasons, one being that it enables the 
audit system and without that, any process running before the audit daemon is 
not auditable - ever. The work around is to add audit=1 to grub.conf, but 
then you get a performance hit for everyone.

The second reason is that any audit event that occurs before the audit daemon 
runs could be lost. There may be AVCs on boot that you want or something else 
important that you wanted to capture.

I guess the message is without coordination, some of our security features may 
not be working right unless consideration is given to their needs.
