Hi Alexey,

Just soem thought from my side...

I think this should be benchmarked with perf. Things like this ain't good
performance wise (we already fixed a bunch of those). That is when function call
convention is more expensive than payload. Especially if you call this many
times per query.

Check for thd != NULL is not performance wise either (because payload is really
small). I believe that thd must be set in all cases: auditing something that
doesn't have context sounds a bit strange.

Why? Just to avoid passing this as an argument? Though these are normally just
12 bytes, (FWICS) you only need them for a very short duration. All other time
it's just waste of memory. It's not a problem alone, but THD is already way too
overloaded by things like this. This point was originally risen by Vicentiu
back in Amsterdam.

In a nutshell, performance wise it is best if there's just one function call per
