CONFIG_AUDIT_LOGINUID_IMMUTABLE: Make audit loginuid immutable

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_AUDIT_LOGINUID_IMMUTABLE:

Help text

The config option toggles if a task setting its loginuid requires CAP_SYS_AUDITCONTROL or if that task should require no special permissions but should instead only allow setting its loginuid if it was never previously set. On systems which use systemd or a similar central process to restart login services this should be set to true. On older systems in which an admin would typically have to directly stop and start processes this should be set to false. Setting this to true allows one to drop potentially dangerous capabilites from the login tasks, but may not be backwards compatible with older init systems.
