The rtld-audit interfaces introduces a slowdown due to enabling profiling
instrumentation (as if LD_AUDIT implied LD_PROFILE).  However, instrumenting
is only necessary if one of audit libraries provides PLT (la_plt{enter,exit}
symbols).  Otherwise, the slowdown can be avoided.

The following patch adjusts the logic that enables profiling to iterate
over all audit modules and check if any of those provides a PLT hook.

Please use my correct email here and in the Cc list (it's ispras.ru, not
ispras.dot.ru).

It seems the part about binding needs to be updated, because the commit message
and the patch itself does not change anything for binding hooks? My
understanding always was that no change is necessary w.r.t la_symbind
callbacks: the loader invokes them when doing symbol resolution, and presence
of PLT does not matter.

Ack, I used the one on previous submission. I will update with the correct
one

The NEWS entry needs update indeed.  For 'la_symbind', I was trying to handle a
different issue which in turn made this very change ineffective (issue la_symbind
for bind-now).  My plan is to address it in a different patch.

This is wrong since it disables la_symbind() for lazy resolution
if the audit modules does not provide the plt callbacks as well.
I will update the patch to now call la_symbind() on _dl_fixup() if
la_symbind() is set.
