Two things here:

1. We need to allocate a buffer to feed to d_absolute_path(), and
getname_kernel() is just going to make another copy so we need to make
sure we clean up after ourselves. Perhaps I missing it, but I'm not
seeing where we free the kmalloc'd buffer or call putname(). Feel
free to correct me if I'm missing something obvious.

2. While the audit_* calls are going to bail early in the cases where
audit is disabled, or not configured, we are going to pay the penalty
for the kmalloc() call above, as well as the getname_kernel() and
d_absolute_path() calls below. I think it might be beneficial to
create a new function (audit_log_symlink_denied() perhaps?) which
encapsulates all the audit bits in may_follow_link() and exits early
when needed. What do you think?

(Point #2 is why I didn't merge patch 3/4, just include it in this
revised patch)
