audit: remove CONFIG_AUDIT_LOGINUID_IMMUTABLE
After trying to use this feature in Fedora we found the hard coding policy like this into the kernel was a bad idea. Surprise surprise. We ran into these problems because it was impossible to launch a container as a logged in user and run a login daemon inside that container. This reverts back to the old behavior before this option was added. The option will be re-added in a userspace selectable manor such that userspace can choose when it is and when it is not appropriate.

- help
- 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.
