It looks like this should be safe already since if there is no context,
it won't call into the real audit logging function and as you point out,
this should never happen outside of a syscall.

The other way to address this would be to have your timekeeping audit
logging functions save the parameters you want to log somewhere in the
struct audit_context union and have it print the record on syscall exit
based on the presence of this type and applicable filters.
