[GIT PULL] Audit patches for v4.17
(too old to reply)

Hi Linus,

We didn't have anything to send for v4.16, but we're back with a
little more than usual for v4.17. Eleven patches in total, most fall
into the small fix category, but there are three non-trivial changes
worth calling out: the audit entry filter is being removed after
deprecating it for quite a while (years of no one really using it
because it turns out to be not very practical), created our own
version of "__mutex_owner()" because the locking folks were upset we
were using theirs, improved our handling of kernel command line
parameters to make them more forgiving, and we fixed auditing of
symlink operations.

Everything passes the audit-testsuite and as of a few minutes ago it
merges well with your tree.

Please pull, thanks.
