[PATCH] Audit: Ignore terminating NUL in AUDIT_USER_TTY messages

From: Miloslav Trmac <mitr redhat com>

AUDIT_USER_TTY, like all other messages sent from user-space, is sent
NUL-terminated.  Unlike other user-space audit messages, which come only
from trusted sources, AUDIT_USER_TTY messages are processed using

This patch modifies AUDIT_USER_TTY handling to ignore the trailing NUL
and use the "quoted_string" representation of the message if possible.

AUDIT_USER_TTY will commonly contain spaces, but not always.  This patch
cleans the AUDIT_USER_TTY messages up a bit.
