fs: handle failed audit_log_start properly
Sasha Levin [Thu, 4 Oct 2012 23:57:31 +0000 (19:57 -0400)]
audit_log_start() may return NULL, this is unchecked by the caller in
audit_log_link_denied() and could cause a NULL ptr deref.

Introduced by commit a51d9eaa ("fs: add link restriction audit reporting").
