I can not see a good reason why this patch is separate from patches 5
and 6, please squash them down into one patch. As it currently stands
the logging function introduced here has no caller so it is pointless
by itself. Strive to make an individual patch have some significance
on its own whenever possible.

This will also help you write a better commit description, right now
the commit description tells me nothing, but if you bring in the other
patches you can talk about consolidating similar code into a common
function.

See my comments below about audit_enabled.

Should nentries be an unsigned int?

This is a good example of why the context of a caller matters; taken
alone I would say that we need a check for audit_enabled here, but if
we look at the latter patches we can see that the caller already has
the audit_enabled check.

Considering that the caller is already doing an audit_enabled check,
we might want to consider moving the audit_enabled check into
audit_nf_cfg() where we do the dummy context check. It's a static
inline so there shouldn't be a performance impact and it makes the
caller's code cleaner.

Why do we need the context variable, why not just call audit_context()
here directly?

We generally don't add comments when audit_log_start() fails
elsewhere, please don't do it here.
