    * Show program path in AUTH learning messages
    * Allow SCD mlock in PM
    * New kernel config RSBAC_SWITCH_BOOT_OFF: ‘Allow to switch modules
off with kernel parameter’
    * Show transaction number in learning info messages.
    * Add transaction names for human use and set names for learn
    * Use -I to backup extra groups in rsbac_usershow backup mode.
