[PATCH] Audit: make audit=0 actually turn off audit



Currently audit=0 on the kernel command line does absolutely nothing.
Audit always loads and always uses its resources such as creating the
kernel netlink socket.  This patch causes audit=0 to actually disable
audit.  Audit will use no resources and starting the userspace auditd
daemon will not cause the kernel audit system to activate.
