I don't know what exactly the kernel parameter 'audit=0' does, perhaps
it does the job. I also don't know if disabling the spectre mitigations
for newer kernels, provides a faster path when disabling audit, let
alone that I'm not sure that even on an old machine without meltdown and
spectre mitigations, but an old kernel with CONFIG_AUDIT disabled, has
got noticeable impact on audio performance. I just build my old kernels
with disabling it by the kernel config. FWIW those using snaps should
consider to keep audit enabled:

"Since version 2.36, snapd enabled AppArmor support for Arch Linux. In
order to use it, you have to enable AppArmor in your system, see
Note: If AppArmor isn't enabled in your system then all snaps will run
in devel mode which mean they will have same, unrestricted access to
your system as apps installed from Arch Linux repositories." -
