Hi Roberto,
I did some testing after making the needed code changes,
the output is as expected the buf template field only contains
the buf when the ima_event_data.buf is set.

However i just want to double check if adding two new fields to
the struct ima_event_data is approach you want me to take?
Mimi any concerns?

what all tests do i need to run to confirm i am not
in-inadvertently breaking some thing else?

Thanks,
Prakhar Srivastava
