I realize this comment is a little silly given the nature of loginuid,
but if we are going to abstract away loginuid accesses (which I think
is good), we should probably access it once, store it in a local
variable, perform the validity check on the local variable, then
commit the local variable to audit_sig_uid.  I realize a TOCTOU
problem is unlikely here, but with this new layer of abstraction it
seems that some additional safety might be a good thing.
