Thank you.

This patch will make a slight but user visible change.

When tomoyo_profile(domain->ns, domain->profile)->pref[TOMOYO_PREF_MAX_LEARNING_ENTRY] is
increased (or domain->profile switches to a different profile which has larger
pref[TOMOYO_PREF_MAX_LEARNING_ENTRY] value) after domain->flags[TOMOYO_DIF_QUOTA_WARNED] = true
is called, tomoyo_domain_quota_is_ok() will continue returning "false", and ACLs are no longer

Therefore, administrator will have to manually do domain->flags[TOMOYO_DIF_QUOTA_WARNED] = false
after increasing pref[TOMOYO_PREF_MAX_LEARNING_ENTRY] value (or changing domain->profile).

But since the message

WARNING: Domain '%s' has too many ACLs to hold. Stopped learning mode.

is a hint that tells administrator that "you will surely fail to try the enforcing mode on this
domain because the kernel has failed to automatically append at least one ACL to this domain",
administrator would have to retry the learning mode after increasing
pref[TOMOYO_PREF_MAX_LEARNING_ENTRY] value (or changing domain->profile) even without this patch.

Therefore, asking administrator to also clear domain->flags[TOMOYO_DIF_QUOTA_WARNED] after
increasing pref[TOMOYO_PREF_MAX_LEARNING_ENTRY] value (or changing domain->profile) would be
