So I experienced the problem.  One problem was passing victim (dentry), rather 
then victim->d_inode (oops).  But also, I think there might be another, more 
fundamental flaw in that I'm operating on a inode->i_audit reference that 
could be pulled out from under us in some places.  I'm currently looking into 
this (if it is possible) in some notable places.  I'll post another patch 
tonight with at least the obvious fix.  Sorry about that.
