please let's not diverge the topic of this report, and if you feel
dmesg should be included in *each and every report*, then please bring
that discussion on debian-devel for broader audience.

I think that poses some privacy concerns and that would have to be
included in each report (of a system when apparmor is running)
bloating them for little gain if the bug is not apparmor-related, so I
want just to include a small not of a LSM running and what it is.
