Probably. It's a kernel netlink socket.
But the configuration is not per listener, but for all, so if one
decides it's finished it'll disable the auditing for all of them. So
it's more of experimental nature, if anyone wants to make a readahead
list for his system.
Also it requires root privileges, I guess inotify doesn't.

One of the things I wanted with audit, which unfortunately did not
work (maybe it's fixed or added by now) is to filter out accesses by
filesystem. Accesses to /proc really flooded my logs, and caused
dropped messages on the netlink socket!

I do that, but I need to have 0-terminated strings for the filenames,
so I need to copy them to a buffer and make them 0-terminated. That is
exactly the memcpy I do.
