Is "audit_n_rules" a specific enough trigger?  Right now, even if there are no rules configured at all, audit_log_start() while processing a syscall will mark that syscall for auditing, and all collected information about the syscall will be logged at syscall exit.

Would the suggested change break this behavior?
