audit: rework execve audit
The purpose of audit_bprm() is to log the argv array to a userspace daemon at the end of the execve system call. Since user-space hasn't had time to run, this array is still in pristine state on the process' stack; so no need to copy it, we can just grab it from there. In order to minimize the damage to audit_log_*() copy each string into a temporary kernel buffer first. Currently the audit code requires that the full argument vector fits in a single packet. So currently it does clip the argv size to a (sysctl) limit, but only when execve auditing is enabled. If the audit protocol gets extended to allow for multiple packets this check can be removed.
