Have the above three patches been tested on old kernels?

I don't understand what the point of these last two items are. If the session 
is not set, we have ses=4294967295 in the audit trail. That can already be 
specified in ausearch as --session -1. I also am not sure that session 
information makes any sense for aureport because we have aulast which reports 
on session activity for users.
