Comment 2 Eric Paris 2006-09-28 13:59:33 EDT
I sent an e-mail directly to the ibm reporter to ask this question (since I was
apparently supposed to have all this fixed by last monday) but should follow
process as well.

By "invalid" do they mean the usage of > or < ?  I assume they believe that only
= or != should be allowed?  If so this should be done in userspace in the
auditctl utility in audit_rule_fieldpair_data() by returning -12 and explaining
it in an error inside setopt.   This should not be a kernel fix.
Comment 3 Steve Grubb 2006-09-28 14:06:51 EDT
only = and != are valid for arch field. This needs to be in the kernel since
anyone could use an old audit tool or write their own.

QE ack for RHEL5B2.  Related to 14b of the release criteria.
