We need to go ahead and take the next 2 upper bits in the same patch and save 
those for future use. For now, if those bits are set, the kernel should 
reject the rule. To support this, we also need some code added to 
audit_add_rule to check that the operators is something the kernel

Not unless you use it somewhere. Keep it local until the need arise to prevent 
name collisions.

Does this make sense? What does !< mean? I think AUDIT_NEGATE only makes sense 
in relation to AUDIT_EQUAL. It should be moved to that case if not eliminated
