   HEAD: d211f177b28ec070c25b3d0b960aa55f352f731f audit: Update kdoc for audit_send_reply and audit_list_rules_send

Starting with 3.14-rc1 the audit code is faulty (think oopses and races)

      audit: Send replies in the proper network namespace.
      audit: Update kdoc for audit_send_reply and audit_list_rules_send
