At first glance it looks good!

I've compared the content of the trees and they are the same (modulo
the last revision in bzr that I guess will be converted before the
final switch).

One thing I've noticed is that the way changes are backported from
master to older branches (i.e. tons of cherry-picks) makes history
hard to analyze, i.e. it's very hard to tell "what do we have in
master but not in apparmor-2.11". One way we fix that problem in other
projects is to fork topic branches not off master, but off the oldest
maintenance branch the topic branch is a candidate for, and then we
merge the topic branch into all candidate maintenance branches, no
cherry-pick involved, no commit duplication, and history becomes more
useful :)

/me is excited!

Thanks a lot for doing this work.
