We only collect information in audit_syscall_entry() and this should
remain the case imho.  We're able to send records to userland in
audit_syscall_exit() and audit_free() because we know that if we reach
audit_log_exit(), our record is complete (the syscall has finished
execution) even if it does come to userspace in pieces.  From
audit_syscall_entry, we don't know this.
