Eric's patch ["Audit: fix handling of 'strings' with NULL characters"]
replaces my 1/2 ["audit: fix NUL handling in untrusted strings"], and
makes my 2/2 ["audit: Handle embedded NUL in TTY input auditing"]

Either Eric's patch or my 2/2 should go to the stable releases. The
other patches do not have to.
