Why not enable audit in your linux-grsec package? Then you can make
linux-grsec an optional dependency of the audit userspace tools for
people who want to use more than just the convenience functions. I still
have an occasional use for audit and the overhead it adds to the kernel
is negligible compared to grsecurity itself.
