Merge tag 'audit-pr-20210830' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/pcmoore/audit
Pull audit updates from Paul Moore: "Two patches in the audit pull request for v5.15; one is trivial ("header protection") but the second is a real patch that fixes a refcounting problem. The refcount fix normally would have been sent up during the -rcX cycle, but since we merged it less than a week before v5.14 proper I felt it was better to wait for the merge window to open; the patch is marked with the usual -stable markings" * tag 'audit-pr-20210830' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/pcmoore/audit: audit: move put_tree() to avoid trim_trees refcount underflow and UAF audit: add header protection to kernel/audit.h
