Ok, then maybe we should be using kmem_cache_zalloc() instead of
kmem_cache_alloc() in audit_buffer_alloc()? (as I've done in
the last patch of ghak81/first patch of ghak90)

If this is too much overhead, then we can initialize ctx = NULL;

But ctx isn't part of struct audit_buffer when !CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL. It
is #ifdef-ed out. What am I missing?

We do if ctx isn't part of struct audit_buffer when
!CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL.
