[PATCH 10/11] UBUNTU: SAUCE: fix regression with domain change in complain mode

The patch
Fix no_new_privs blocking change_onexec when using stacked namespaces

changed when the no_new_privs checks is processed so the test could
be correctly applied in a stacked profile situation.

However it changed the behavior of the error returned in complain mode,
which will have both @error and @new set.

Fix this by introducing a new var to indicate the no_new_privs condition
instead of relying on error. While doing this allow the new label under
no new privs to be audited, by having its reference put in the error path,
instead of in the no_new_privs condition check.
