Re: [PATCH] Audit: netlink socket can be auto-bound to pid other than current->pid

Can we please just leave audit_pid as the one flag to tell us if
auditd is supposedly up there in userspace?  Use audit_nlk_pid to send
messages to the right place, but leave everything else to do with
audit_pid alone.

unneeded change

good.

userspace is never going to care about audit_nlk_pid, its meaningless
at that level.  This message should continue to use audit_pid.

We still need to 0 audit_pid otherwise all of the tests which use it
are bogus (aka things like audit_panic and audit_filter_syscall you
mentioned)

don't need this if we zero audit_pid.
