Please note that the audit daemon needs to start before any daemon if
it to work right. There's a couple reasons, one being that it enables the
audit system and without that, any process running before the audit daemon is
not auditable - ever. The work around is to add audit=1 to grub.conf, but
then you get a performance hit for everyone.
The second reason is that any audit event that occurs before the audit daemon
runs could be lost. There may be AVCs on boot that you want or something else
important that you wanted to capture.
There shouldn't be any semantic shift on this front, but if there's
problems we can make sure they get fixed up before the release.
