apparmor_parser fails to consider its own time stamp when determining
if profile cache is stale
Status in AppArmor Linux application security framework:
Status in AppArmor 2.6 series:
If the apparmor_parser is updated (outside of current packaging), when
doing profile loads it will use the existing cache of compiled
profiles, instead of forcing a recompile on profiles.
This can cause apparmor to load bad policy if the parser contains a
bug fix for the previous version of the parser.
This can be worked around in packaging by invalidating the cache and
forcing a profile reload when the parser is upgraded.
