OK, preliminary patches attached; the first one is minimal "take care of
deadlocks", hopefully suitable for 2.6.16.2.  The second is incremental
to that (actually, a combination of several smaller steps from git tree)
doing the audit_free() move and cleanups.  Warning: both are absolutely
untested.

Question: do we have agreed upon variants of "Inotify kernel API" and
"filesystem location based auditing" patches against the current mainline
(or FC, no difference in that respect) tree?
