This is a delayed HEADS UP that "options AUDIT" is now the default in GENERIC. 
This means you either need to add "nooptions AUDIT" in configs based on 
GENERIC, or you can now take out "options AUDIT" :-).  Audit support will not 
be enabled by default out-of-the-box, but it will now be possible to turn it 
on without a kernel recompile.

If someone wants to lend a hand updating the chapter in the Handbook, that 
would be most helpful.  A reboot is still required after setting the rc.conf 
entry to propagate any audit_user/audit_control settings to all login 
sessions; you can do it without a reboot if you don't want to retroactively 
enforce audit on login sessions already present when audit is started.
