Subject: [PATCH] selinux: hooks: cleanup orphan keywords in audit log text

Convert audit_log() call to WARN_ONCE().

Rename "type=" to nlmsg_type=" to avoid confusion with the audit record

Added "protocol=" to help track down which protocol (NETLINK_AUDIT?) was used
within the netlink protocol family.
