[GIT PULL] Audit patches for v4.15

Hi Linus,

Another relatively small pull request for audit, nine patches total.
The only real new bit of functionality is the patch from Richard which
adds the ability to filter records based on the filesystem type.  The
remainder are bug fixes and cleanups; the bug fix highlights include:
ensuring that we properly audit init/PID-1 (me), and allowing the
audit daemon to shutdown the kernel/auditd connection cleanly by
setting the audit PID to zero (Steve).

Please merge for v4.14.
