So dh_apparmor only needs/uses aa-status --enabled?

The only thing I can say about that is:

    Go away or I will replace you with a very small shell script!


test -e /sys/module/apparmor || exit 1
while read device mountpoint fstype trash ; do
    test "$fstype" == "securityfs" && break
done < /proc/mounts
test -n "$mountpoint" || exit 3
test -d "$mountpoint/apparmor" || exit 4
test -n "$(<$mountpoint/apparmor/profiles)" || exit 2
exit 0

This script should work, however I gave it only a quick test and didn't 
test on a system without AppArmor (but tested by modifying the script to 
cause negative answers in various conditions).

I know I'm using quite some bashisms here, but IMHO that's cheaper than 
calling some external helpers (the first version of the script had a 
grep with an interesting regex, and a cat for testing if 
$mountpoint/apparmor/profiles isn't empty - well, "grep .." would also 
work ;-)

Oh, and the exitcodes don't always match aa-status exactly, but that 
could be fixed by an additional test if needed.
