<SNIP gazillions of lines of unparseable garbage>

Is it really necessary to put this into the changelog?

No.

Not going to happen. We are not reshuffling all that code just to
accomodate random audit log invocations in a critical section plus having a
gazillion of GFP_ATOMIC allocation in the critical section just because.

The whole information can be reconstructed after the fact:

1) Copy the user space supplied struct timex to a buffer

2) Retrieve the current timex information _before_ invoking
do_adjtimex().

3) Look at the ret value and the resulting struct timex which is going
to be copied back to user space and figure out with the help of #1
and #2 what you need to log.

That does not even need a single line of change in the NTP code and almost
everything happens in fully preemptible context.

Thanks,

tglx
