audit_set_pid tells the kernel what the pid is of the audit
daemon. When the pid is set to 0, the kernel will log all events
to syslog. Otherwise it will try to send events to the netlink
connection that has the same pid given by this function. If for
some reason the process goes away, the kernel will automatically
set the value to 0 itself. Usually this function is called by the
audit daemon and not an external program. If wmode is WAIT_YES,
the function will wait for an ACK from the kernel.
