Argh!  I missed that the audit_krule->flags end up in audit_rule_data->flags.

Bummer.

Some thoughts:

* Your 1/2 patch saved 32-bits in audit_krule, what are your thoughts on 
adding a new 32-bit bitmap, say "private", which could be used internally to 
track things like this?  I'm not a big fan of overloading parts of the public 
API for use by internal mechanisms, it almost always gets messy.

* Also, why is there both an audit_krule->flags and audit_krule->listnr field?  
With the exception of the AUDIT_FILTER_PREPEND bit are they always going to be 
the same?  I wonder if some more cleanup could be done here ...
