Merge branch 'stable-4.6' of git://git.infradead.org/users/pcmoore/audit
Pull audit updates from Paul Moore: "A small set of patches for audit this time; just three in total and one is a spelling fix. The two patches with actual content are designed to help prevent new instances of auditd from displacing an existing, functioning auditd and to generate a log of the attempt. Not to worry, dead/stuck auditd instances can still be replaced by a new instance without problem. Nothing controversial, and everything passes our regression suite" * 'stable-4.6' of git://git.infradead.org/users/pcmoore/audit: audit: Fix typo in comment audit: log failed attempts to change audit_pid configuration audit: stop an old auditd being starved out by a new auditd
