This package provides some improvements over the original e4rat package, and circumvents some usability issues.

Note that in order to use the audit tools, a kernel build with auditing support enabled is required.

Unfortunately I can't add linux-zen as a dependency, as that would require all users to install it. Instead, I removed the existing linux dependency. I'm surprised the linux-zen package does not provide linux, as many of the other kernel packages do. Considering the required linux kernel version is fairly old at this point, I don't expect it will cause any issues to remove this requirement.

I don't know if linux-zen is built with auditing support, but if not, you will need to use (or build) a kernel with it enabled to use the e4rat-lite-collect procedure with success. Once that is done the auditing is not required.

Please include `linux-zen` as dependency. I don't use `linux`, I use `linux-zen`

A recent update (most likely to boost) may lead to kernel panics when booting, if e4rat-lite was built before the update. Re-building the package corrects the issue.
