  Modified files:

    sys/security/audit   audit.c audit_private.h 
  Added files:
    sys/security/audit   audit_pipe.c 
  Add support for audit pipe special devices, which allow user space
  applications to insert a "tee" in the live audit event stream.  Records
  are inserted into a per-clone queue so that user processes can pull
  discreet records out of the queue.  Unlike delivery to disk, audit pipes
  are "lossy", dropping records in low memory conditions or when the
  process falls behind real-time events.  This mechanism is appropriate
  for use by live monitoring systems, host-based intrusion detection, etc,
  and avoids applications having to dig through active on-disk trails that
  are owned by the audit daemon.
