They should not be doing that. When another process is the object, we have 
specific auxiliary audit records to record this. We have to do this for CAPP so 
MAC systems should not have to do this. See AUDIT_OBJ_PID.

Yes, we need to record the object information. But we have a record type for 
that already AUDIT_OBJ_PID.

It should be captured. I thought it was for the LSPP work we did. If for some 
reason its not recorded, then audit_log_pid_context() should be called.
