Ok, I've gotten to the bottom of this "audit on, selinux off" problem
and tested the fix.  Attached is a patch against David's current git

The changes integrate:
- Jiri's suggested handling of EOPNOTSUPP.  Avoids audit_panic() calls
in EOPNOTSUPP situations
- David's suggested correction of a couple of warnings (using the const
char* suffix assignment at the top of audit_inode_context())
- And the real reason why this kernel wouldn't boot when SELinux was
off...  There was a missing dummy() function that should be stubbed in
and return NULL when SELinux is off.

Thanks for your help reporting this, Jiri.  Our linux-audit mailing list
really should have shaken out this bug earlier.
