The document talks of a situation that could be but is not really in the
implementation. It says "If the system-call audit module were to ever need to
reject stale data". So its not really something implemented. I was just
correcting the example you had there since it made more sense to me to
continue looking for other rules in the list once a rule was shown to be
stale. It just makes the example more correct.

But I'm Ok if you want to leave that alone ;-) Hence, the RFC tag to this
patch ;-)
