Subject[PATCH -v2] security: remove dead hook acct
Date
Unused hook.  Remove.

Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com>
---
This is a resend of the broken patch I sent earlier. It was the last patch in
the series and I had uncommitted changes in my repo which fixed the borkeness.
James you should apply all of the patches I originally sent except the last
one. Use this one instead.
