    I don't think you'll get anywhere with auditing. We need to write down
    the semantics you want, define them at the VFS level and make sure
    they're not conflicting with defined userspace semantics or kernel
    assumptions.

    I think you need to learn the basic distinction between the VFS layer
    and a lowlevel filesystem driver.
