The intent here is to clearly indicate and separate nesting from
parallel use of several containers by one netns.  If we do away with
that distinction, then we lose that inheritance accountability and
should really run the list through a "uniq" function to remove the
produced redundancies.  This clear inheritance is something Steve was
looking for since tracking down individual events/records to show that
inheritance was not aways feasible due to rolled logs or search effort.

Ok.

It would also be faster, but in some places it isn't available such as
for ptrace and signal targets.  This also links back to the drop record
refcounts to hold onto the contobj until process exit, or signal
delivery.

What we could do is to supply two potential parameters, a contobj and/or
a contid, and have it use the contobj if it is valid, otherwise, use the
contid, as is done for names and paths supplied to audit_log_name().

I'll defer to Steve here.  "?" would be one character vs 20 for (u64)-1.
I don't expect there to be that many records containing (u64)-1, but it
would also make them visually easier to pick out if that is a factor.

At first when I read your comment, I thought we could just take contid
and drop oldcontid, but if it fails, we still want all the information,
so given the way I've set up the search code in userspace, listing only
the newest contid in the contid field and all the rest in oldcontid
could be a good compromise.
