Sure, I will switch it to current in the call to audit_get_contid().

The local context is a distinct issue. Like USER records, I prefer
local due to potential record volume, it is already trackable as far as
Steve is concerned, and if it is to be connected with the syscall
record, it should be linked to syscall records in a seperate new github
issue with its own patch. It accumulates events until the buffer is
flushed to a record, so the timestamp only represents the flush (usually
user "CR/enter").

Well, I'm 100% certain it is linked to a process, but so are USER
records that are already being discussed as the exception. This is
basically a keystroke logger (that has a flag to omit passwords).
