Subject: [PATCH V4 0/4] audit by executable name

This is a part of Peter Moody, my and Eric Paris' work to implement
audit by executable name.

Please see the accompanying userspace patch:
The userspace interface is not expected to change appreciably unless something
important has been overlooked.  Setting and deleting rules works as expected.
If the path does not exist at rule creation time, it will be re-evaluated every
time there is a change to the parent directory at which point the change in
device and inode will be noted.

Here's a test run:

# /usr/local/sbin/auditctl -a always,exit -F dir=/tmp -F exe=/bin/touch -F key=touch_tmp
# /usr/local/sbin/ausearch --start recent -k touch_tmp

Revision history:
v4: Re-order and squash down fixups
    Fix audit_dup_exe() to copy pathname string before calling audit_alloc_mark().

v3: Rationalize and rename some function names and clean up get/put and free code.
    Rename several "watch" references to "mark".
    Rename audit_remove_rule() to audit_remove_mark_rule().
    Let audit_free_rule() take care of calling audit_remove_mark().
    Put audit_alloc_mark() arguments in same order as watch, tree and inode.
    Move the access to the entry for audit_match_signal() to the beginning
     of the function in case the entry found is the same one passed in.
     This will enable it to be used by audit_remove_mark_rule().

v2: Misguided attempt to add in audit_exe similar to watches

v1.5: eparis' switch to fsnotify

v1: Change to path interface instead of inode

v0: Peter Moodie's original patches

Next step:
Get full-path notify working.

Eric Paris (3):
  audit: implement audit by executable
  audit: clean simple fsnotify implementation
  audit: convert audit_exe to audit_fsnotify

Richard Guy Briggs (1):
  audit: avoid double copying the audit_exe path string
