Bug Description

When the tcpdump profile was written, net_admin hadn't yet allowed loading network modules. For some time it has though (https://lwn.net/Articles/430462/) and since the tcpdump profile already allows 'net_admin', we should drop 'sys_module' from the profile.

tcpdump (4.9.2-2ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=medium

  * debian/usr.sbin.tcpdump: drop 'capability sys_module' since we already
    have 'net_admin' and network module loading (which happens with -D) is
    allowed with 'net_admin' (LP: #1759029)
