1. impact of the bug is minimal for stable releases, since apport is disabled by default. However, being able to run 'ubuntu-bug', 'apport-bug' or 'apport-collect' is useful for developers trying to get more information from users.

2. This has not been addressed in the development branch (it isn't open yet).

3. Patch is very small. See comment #3.

$ sudo apport-bug -p apparmor --save /tmp/apport.txt

Examine /tmp/apport.txt. It should have something like:
ProcKernelCmdline: root=UUID=378db089-c0de-431c-b57d-9675fa5e6319 ro quiet splash

5. The regression potential of the patch is very low, as it updates the apport hook which is not enabled by default in the stable releases.
