Automatically enabling multiple legacy major LSMs might result in a confusion like
Jakub encountered. For a few releases from 5.1 (about one year or so?), since
CONFIG_DEFAULT_SECURITY_* will be ignored after CONFIG_LSM is once defined in
their kernel configs, I guess that it is better not to enable TOMOYO automatically
until most people complete migrating from CONFIG_DEFAULT_SECURITY_* to CONFIG_LSM
and get used to use lsm= kernel command line option rather than security= kernel
command line option.
