I just sent my feedback on the v6 patchset, and it's small: basically
three patches with "one-liner" changes needed.

Richard, it's your call on how you want to proceed from here. You can
post a v7 incorporating the feedback, or since the tweaks are so
minor, you can post fixup patches; the former being more
comprehensive, the later being quicker to review and digest.
Regardless of that, while we are waiting on a prototype from the
container folks, I think it would be good to pull this into a working
branch in the audit repo (as mentioned above), unless you would prefer
to keep it as a patchset on the mailing list? If you want to go with
the working branch approach, I'll keep the branch fresh and (re)based
against audit/next and if we notice any problems you can just submit
fixes against that branch (depending on the issue they can be fixup
patches, or proper patches). My hope is that this will enable the
process to move quicker as we get near the finish line.
