Why is action and fsmagic being logged as untrusted strings? Untrusted 
strings are used when an unprivileged user can affect the contents of the 
field such as creating a file with space or special characters in the name.

Also, subject and object information is missing. Who loaded this rule?

Why is op & cause being logged as an untrusted string? This also has 
incomplete subject information.

pid, uid, auid, tty, session, subj, comm, exe, res.  <- these are required to 
be searchable

The audit user space utilities pretty much expects those fields in that order 
for any IMA originating events. You can add things like op or cause before 
that. The reason why you can do that is those additional fields are not 
required to be searchable by common criteria.
