Right, running the query_label test compiled against the trunk
definitions but with the 2.9.2-0ubuntu1 parser fails in the same way.

Note that changed definition of the AA_MAY_* perms also causes
compilation of the link_subset test to generate a number of warnings,
due to link_subset.c defining them differently than in apparmor.h:


I was working on a patch to address the warnings, but it becomes
difficult to work in both a USE_SYSTEM environment where 2.9 libraries
are available and against the different trunk definitions. I
didn't want to merely protect with #ifndef AA_MAY_*, because
link_subset.c defines some macros that aren't defined in either
libraries/libapparmor/include/sys/apparmor.h or parser/immunix.h:

One of the questions I have is that with rev 3081, the macro definitions
become part of the library API, which means that it gets harder to
change them in the future. Are we sure we want that? (We don't have any
releases out there with them visible in the header yet.)
