Thanks for thinking about it. Perhaps I've misunderstood what you
mean, so here's my take on it. We need this patch precisely because
AppArmor resolves symlinks: when Evince runs /bin/gzip, that's
effectively a symlink to /usr/bin/gzip on a merged-/usr system, the
path AppArmor takes into account is /usr/bin/gzip.
