This means we see a bug long after it happened, so we can't correlate it
to the cause.

It's fine as an option (even the default) but I'd like to be able to
audit after every operation. Perhaps a partial audit that only looks at
the gfns and vaddrs that were affected in the last operation?

I have to admit, it's been a very long time since I last used audit.
