Yes. We've been talking about that. Also translating the syscall from a number 
to its proper text name.

auditsc.c in audit_log_exit function
         if (context->return_valid)
                 audit_log_format(ab, " exit=%u", context->return_code);

That should be %d.

I asked that question Wednesday. Why does log exit loop spitting out little 
messages instead of 1. I think we decided to leave it as is and query tools 
need to handle multiple records.

The success option is what will help you lower the number of records the 
kernel sends to user space. I suppose we need to figure out its correct usage 
or if its broken.
