I vaguely remember reading/hearing something in the past about
kmem_cache_alloc() not returning a zero'd out buffer in all cases, can
you say for certain that "ab" in this case is always going to be
zero'd out? This is an honest question.

If we can't guarantee that "ab" is zero'd out, we should manually set
ab->ctx to NULL when !CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL.

If ab->ctx is NULL we don't really need this, do we?
