NAME         top

       audit_request_signal_info - Request signal info for the audit system

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <libaudit.h>

       int audit_request_signal_info(int fd);

DESCRIPTION         top

       audit_request_signal_info requests that the kernel send information
       about the sender of a signal to the audit daemon. The sinal info
       structure is as follows:

       struct audit_sig_info {
               uid_t           uid;
               pid_t           pid;
               char            ctx[0];
       };

       This function is likely to be used only by audit daemons and
       shouldn't be called by any other kind of program.

RETURN VALUE         top

       The return value is <= 0 on error, otherwise it is the netlink
       sequence id number. This function can have any error that sendto
       would encounter.
