Are you concerned with the availability of the data when the audit
signal info record is generated, when the kernel last deals with a
particular contid or when userspace thinks there will be no more
references to it?

I've got a bit of a dilemma with this one...

In fact, the latter situation you describe isn't a concern at present to
be able to deliver the information since the value is copied into the
audit signal global internal variables before the signalling task dies
and the audit signal info record is created from those copied (cached)
values when requested from userspace.

So the issue raised above I don't think is a problem.  However, patch 18
(which wasn't reviewed because it was a patch to a number of preceeding
patches) changes the reporting approach to give a chain of nested
contids which isn't reflected in the same level of reporting for the
audit signal patch/mechanism.  Solving this is a bit more complex.  We
could have the audit signal internal caching store a pointer to the
relevant container object and bump its refcount to ensure it doesn't
vanish until we are done with it, but the audit signal info binary
record format already has a variable length due to the selinux context
at the end of that struct and adding a second variable length element to
it would make it more complicated (but not impossible) to handle.
