Subject[PATCH 4.14 17/23] audit: fix potential null dereference context->module.name
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Yi Wang <wang.yi59@zte.com.cn>

commit b305f7ed0f4f494ad6f3ef5667501535d5a8fa31 upstream.

The variable 'context->module.name' may be null pointer when
kmalloc return null, so it's better to check it before using
to avoid null dereference.
Another one more thing this patch does is using kstrdup instead
of (kmalloc + strcpy), and signal a lost record via audit_log_lost.
