Richard Guy Briggs June 27, 2020, 1:20 p.m.
The audit-related parameters in struct task_struct should ideally be
collected together and accessed through a standard audit API.

Collect the existing loginuid, sessionid and audit_context together in a
new struct audit_task_info called "audit" in struct task_struct.

Use kmem_cache to manage this pool of memory.
Un-inline audit_free() to be able to always recover that memory.

Please see the upstream github issue
https://github.com/linux-audit/audit-kernel/issues/81

In the early days of this patchset we talked a lot about how to handle
the task_struct and the changes that would be necessary, ultimately
deciding that encapsulating all of the audit fields into an
audit_task_info struct.  However, what is puzzling me a bit at this
moment is why we are only including audit_task_info in task_info by
reference *and* making it a build time conditional (via CONFIG_AUDIT).

If audit is enabled at build time it would seem that we are always
going to allocate an audit_task_info struct, so I have to wonder why
we don't simply embed it inside the task_info struct (similar to the
seccomp struct in the snippet above?  Of course the audit_context
struct needs to remain as is, I'm talking only about the
task_info/audit_task_info struct.

Richard, I'm sure you can answer this off the top of your head, but
I'd have to go digging through the archives to pull out the relevant
discussions so I figured I would just ask you for a reminder ... ?  I
imagine it's also possible things have changed a bit since those early
discussions and the solution we arrived at then no longer makes as
much sense as it did before.

This is a big nitpick, and I'm only mentioning this in the case you
need to respin this patchset: the "out" label is unnecessary in the
function above.  Simply return the error code, there is no need to
jump to "out" only to immediately return the error code there and
nothing more.

Another nitpick, and this one may even become a moot point given the
question posed above.  However, is there any reason we couldn't get
rid of "info" and simplify this a bit?

  audit_free_syscall(tsk);
  kmem_cache_free(audit_task_cache, tsk->audit);
  tsk->audit = NULL;

This nitpick is barely worth the time it is taking me to write this,
but the whitespace change above isn't strictly necessary.
