Re: [PATCH 2/8] integrity: IMA as an integrity service provider



I'm very slow to the game, I know, but today was the first kernel that I
built from linux-next with IMA on.  I have a comment, and hopefully more
to come....

There are cases where (at least) cause can be a multiword string.  These
should be using audit_log_string() instead of %s.  I'm starting to frown
on %s in audit log more and more heavily these days, actually I don't
think I should let any more users of %s in at all.  If you want I'll go
through and change all of these, but I want to make sure that you will
be ok with multiword string being either "" or translated.  An example
of the problem I see would be in say ima_update_policy() where you have
const char *cause = "already exists";  Currently that record will get
emitted like:

blah cause=already exists blah

which screws up parsers.  It should be:

blah cause="already exists" blah

make sense?
