I believe this should be covered by the existing syscall auditing such as
open and others. The LSPP doesn't state the auditing of the export has to be
any different than other fs auditing, just that it has to occur IMHO. The
additional requirement is the device allocation auditing requirements. An
audit analyst should *hopefully* be able to correlate what has been exported
given these events.
