That is for records for which there is no syscall or user associated.

In fact there is another recent change that would be better to use than
current->audit_context, which is the function audit_context().
See commit cdfb6b3 ("audit: use inline function to get audit context").

Is it always this way? If it isn't, which it should not be, we should
find out why. Well, we should find out why this is NULL anyways, since
it shouldn't be.
