Bug ID: 965861
Summary: Auditd reports unknown field for comm and exe when
used on rules

I am trying to create an exclude filter based on what program made the system

I have tried both comm and exe.

auditctl -a exit,never -F comm="opera"
-F unknown field: comm

auditctl -a exit,never -F exe="/usr/lib/opera/opera"
-F unknown field: exe

According to the man page for audit.rules the exit filer is able to use all
fields in the audit record.

Man Page: The third paragraph under syscall.
The entry list is run through at each syscall entry. The exit list is checked
on syscall exit. The main difference between these two is that some things are
not available at syscall entry and cannot be checked, like the exit value.
Rules on the exit filter are much more common and all fields are available for
use at syscall exit. At some point in the near future the entry filter will be
deprecated, so it would be best to only use the exit filter.

I used the following to rule to test if a -S syscall is need on an audit rule.
-a exit,never -F arch=b32

The system accepted the rule and filtered out all b32 events.

I am seeing the same errors on 13.1 13.2 and 42.1.
