Description of problem
When you have a recursive audit rule watching a directory and its subtree and you remove the directory, you only get an audit event saying the rule is removed and not one on the directory itself. There should be 2 audit events: one on the directory and one saying the rule was removed.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkdir /tmp/test
2. auditctl -a always,exit -F dir=/tmp/test -F key=test
3. rmdir /tmp/test
4. ausearch --start recent -k test

One more event that contains at least a syscall and path record.
