Would it be sensible to break out the namespace from the attribute?

	attrspace="security" attrname="capability"

Why isn't val= quoted?

The attribute value can be a .jpg or worse. I could even see it being an eBPF
program (although That Would Be Wrong) so including it in an audit record could
be a bit of a problem.

It seems that you might want to leave it up to the LSMs to determine which xattr
values are audited. An SELinux system may want to see "security.selinux" values,
but it probably doesn't care about "security.SMACK64TRANSMUTE" values.
