I considered this before when converting the struct audit_contobj to
refcount_t, but decided against it since any updates are in the context
of a list traversal where it could be added to the list and so the
spinlock is already held anyways.

Is there a more efficent or elegant way of doing the locking around the
two list traversals below (_add and _del)?

I wonder about converting the count to refcount_t and only holding the
spinlock for the list_add_rcu() in the _add case.  And for the _del case
holding the spinlock only for the list_del_rcu().

These are the only two locations items are added or deleted from the
lists.

Somewhat related to this is does the list order matter?  Items are
currently added at the end of the list which likely makes locking
simpler, though the start of the list is a simple change.  However,
unless we understand the profile of read use of these lists for
reporting contid use in audit_log_netns_contid_list() I don't think
order matters significantly.  It could be that reporting of a contid
goes down in frequency over the lifetime of a contid that inserting them
at the beginning of the list would be best.  This is not a visible
implementation detail so later optimization should pose no problem.

Agreed.
