The audit system in Linux kernel 2.6.6, and other versions before 18.104.22.168,
when CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL is enabled, uses an incorrect function to free
names_cache memory, which prevents the memory from being tracked by
AUDITSYSCALL code and leads to a memory leak that allows attackers to cause
a denial of service (memory consumption).
