[PATCH]fix the bug of using strtoul in priority_boost_parse() and freq_parse()



Hello Mr. Steve£¬

  In src/auditd-config.c and audisp/audispd-config.c, the function
priority_boost_parser() and freq_parse() use strtoul to convert the numeric 
and
then compare it with INT_MAX. It meant that the value of priority_boost and 
freq
in /etc/audit/auditd.conf should not be larger than INT_MAX.

  But there is a little error in the codes: it uses an int variable to store 
the
result of strtoul() and then compare the variable with INT_MAX. So the result
of comparison is always "not larger than".
  I think it's better to modify the codes to implement its intention.

  The attached patch fixes the problem in src/auditd-config.c and
audisp/audispd-config.c of audit-1.7.4.

  What's your opinion about such modification?

PS:
priority_boost: a non-negative number that tells the audit daemon how much of
a priority boost it should take.
freq: a non-negative number that tells the audit damon how many records to 
write
before issuing an explicit flush to disk command.
