I'm looking for the SYSCALL record that corresponds to the getsession
AVC message.  It should have the same audit event id as the AVC message.
But I don't see one above.  What I was interested in was what pid is
being passed to the getsid() call, and what process corresponds to that
pid - that is the unconfined process that httpd is trying to get
information about.
