Perhaps the two of you could work together to come up with a common
tracepoint that addresses both needs.
On the one hand, we don't need/want to duplicate the avc message
itself; we just need enough to be able to correlate them.
With respect to non-denials, SELinux auditallow statements can be used
to generate avc: granted messages that can be used to support coverage
tools although you can easily flood the logs that way. One other
limitation of the other patch is that it doesn't support generating
trace information for denials silenced by dontaudit rules, which might
be challenging to debug especially on Android where you can't just run
semodule -DB to strip all dontaudits.
