Please don't tie syscall information to this. The syscall will be
sendto. We don't need that information, its implicit. Also, doing this
will possibly wreck things in libauparse. Please test the events with
ausearch --format csv and --format text. IFF the event looks better or
the same should we do this. If stuff disappears, the patch is
breaking things
