Based on previous discussions, I think this would be required for LSPP. If we 
are going for LSPP after meeting CAPP, it wouldn't be bad to start getting 
some things in place.

I think I'd like to make a change to the way that the kernel sends netlink 
packets. It would be far more efficient for log_end to send multiple records 
in 1 packet instead of 7 separate packets. Especially if the admin has 
configured for full sync writing.

I don't think we can/should touch mount.

The audit daemon could be made to handle this. We just select on 2 different 
descriptors & process accordingly. That is, if we need to do this...
