Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/audit
* 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/audit: (29 commits) audit: no leading space in audit_log_d_path prefix audit: treat s_id as an untrusted string audit: fix signedness bug in audit_log_execve_info() audit: comparison on interprocess fields audit: implement all object interfield comparisons audit: allow interfield comparison between gid and ogid audit: complex interfield comparison helper audit: allow interfield comparison in audit rules Kernel: Audit Support For The ARM Platform audit: do not call audit_getname on error audit: only allow tasks to set their loginuid if it is -1 audit: remove task argument to audit_set_loginuid audit: allow audit matching on inode gid audit: allow matching on obj_uid audit: remove audit_finish_fork as it can't be called audit: reject entry,always rules audit: inline audit_free to simplify the look of generic code audit: drop audit_set_macxattr as it doesn't do anything audit: inline checks for not needing to collect aux records audit: drop some potentially inadvisable likely notations ... Use evil merge to fix up grammar mistakes in Kconfig file. Bad speling and horrible grammar (and copious swearing) is to be expected, but let's keep it to commit messages and comments, rather than expose it to users in config help texts or printouts.

+ The config option toggles if a task setting its loginuid requires
+ CAP_SYS_AUDITCONTROL or if that task should require no special permissions
+ but should instead only allow setting its loginuid if it was never
+ previously set. On systems which use systemd or a similar central
+ process to restart login services this should be set to true. On older
+ systems in which an admin would typically have to directly stop and
+ start processes this should be set to false. Setting this to true allows
+ one to drop potentially dangerous capabilites from the login tasks,
+ but may not be backwards compatible with older init systems.
