[Bug 1373070] Re: full fix for disconnected path (paths)



There are actually several ways to get disconnected paths and this
specific one is being caused by the new file ns. The proper fix for this
is delegating access to the object that would not normally be
accessible, however delegation is not available in the current releases
of apparmor and the HACK of attach disconnected is being used to work
around this.

As for apparmor not complaining about disconnected path failures, it should be unless attach disconnected is specified. The info field in the apparmor audit message will be
  info="Failed name lookup - disconnected path"
