The problem is that's a little racy. But more importantly, it would be nice to 
load rules once since there is a chance that high security installations will 
have the audit system in immutable mode.

For rules that do not resolve all the way to an inode, they could be put on a 
wait list that gets checked for resolution anytime mount is called.
