I understand the desire to return zero in that case, I'm not arguing
against that, I'm just not really in love with how these are defined
when CONFIG_AUDIT isn't. Part of it is the AUDIT_DISABLED/AUDIT_OFF
change, part of it is the function being defined as a cpp macro
instead of a dummy function (this of course predates your change).
Based on other comments in this thread it looks like you're looking
into a few things and will likely be respinning this patch, since that
is the case, I would prefer if you changed this to just using simply
"0" as opposed to AUDIT_OFF.

If you really want to make me happy about this patch, you would also
change this to a dummy function instead of a cpp macro. This is a
style nit, and isn't strictly necessary, but I would appreciate it :)
