For the record, this causes a failure in the regression tests, in the
query_label test, due to generating a profile that the kernel won't
accept. Specifically, the following profile fails to load:

  /home/ubuntu/bzr/apparmor/tests/regression/apparmor/query_label {
    audit deny dbus,

Initial examination indicates that the patch is messing up the binary
blob element alignments for some unknown reason; it may be triggering
a latent bug in the parser.
