nvidactl (misspelled) in /etc/apparmor.d/abstractions/ubuntu-browsers.d/multimedia all Ubuntu versions

Bug Description

/etc/apparmor.d/abstractions/ubuntu-browsers.d/multimedia mis-spells an nvidia device:

  # If we allow the above, nvidia based systems will also need these
  /dev/nvidactl rw,
  /dev/nvidia0 rw,

(should of course be nvidiactl). This seems to be the case in all apparmor versions.

I don't know if this affects anything. I can't watch Youtube videos in Firefox, and my fix doesn't improve the situation (there are probably other bugs)

Flash is always a pain: sometimes it works only; mostly i need to reinstall it with the new kernels. I have no problem with Chromium+pepflashplugin, with firefox its 50/50 (often switch to html5), with midori its also a russian roulette experience.

  [ Tyler Hicks ]
  * debian/patches/0059-dbus-rules-for-dbus-abstractions.patch: Add an
    abstraction for the accessibility bus. It is currently very permissive,
    like the dbus and dbus-session abstractions, and grants all permissions on
    the accessibility bus. (LP: #1226141)
  * debian/patches/0071-lp1226356.patch: Fix issues in parsing D-Bus and mount
    rules. Both rule classes suffered from unexpected auditing behavior when
    using the 'deny' and 'audit deny' rule modifiers. The 'deny' modifier
    resulting in accesses being audited and the 'audit deny' modifier
    resulting in accesses not being audited. (LP: #1226356)
  * debian/patches/0072-lp1229393.patch: Fix cache location for .features
    file, which was not being written to the proper location if the parameter
    --cache-loc= is passed to apparmor_parser. This bug resulted in using the
    .features file from /etc/apparmor.d/cache or always recompiling policy.
    Patch thanks to John Johansen. (LP: #1229393)
  * debian/patches/0073-lp1208988.patch: Update AppArmor file rules of UNIX
    domain sockets to include read and write permissions. Both permissions are
    required when a process connects to a UNIX domain socket. Also include new
    tests for mediation of UNIX domain sockets. Thanks to Jamie Strandboge for
    helping with the policy updates and testing. (LP: #1208988)
  * debian/patches/0075-lp1211380.patch: Adjust the audio abstraction to only
    grant access to specific pulseaudio files in the pulse runtime directory
    to remove access to potentially dangerous files (LP: #1211380)

  [ Jamie Strandboge ]
  * debian/patches/0074-lp1228882.patch: typo in ubuntu-browsers.d/multimedia
    (LP: #1228882)
  * 0076_sanitized_helper_dbus_access.patch: allow applications run under
    sanitized_helper to connect to DBus
