    Hmm, I agree that it makes sense to give a short overview of each LSM. A
    description of the AppArmor model and implementation can be found in the
    directory that John referred to actually. I'm unsure how much of that makes
    sense under Documentation/ -- what do you think?

    I guess actual end user information doesn't belong in the kernel sources; that
    really seems wrong.
