We had previously discussed the idea of restricting
orchestrators/engines from only being able to set the audit container
identifier on their own descendants, but it was discarded. I've added a
check to ensure this is now enforced.

I've also added a check to ensure that a process can't set its own audit
container identifier and that if the identifier is already set, then the
orchestrator/engine must be in a descendant user namespace from the
orchestrator that set the previously inherited audit container
identifier.
