well - at least the reporter in:
https://bugzilla.proxmox.com/show_bug.cgi?id=3781

also - when installing `wireguard-tools` on a (slightly older) VM of mine
it tries to pull in `apparmor linux-image-5.10.0-9-rt-amd64
linux-image-rt-amd64 wireguard-tools`
(since wireguard-tools Recommends wireguard-modules)

not a problem per se - but ever since the few reports of people
uninstalling pve-kernel (since linux-image-amd64 started depending on
linux-firmware, which uninstalled pve-firmware) - I'm a bit weary of
keeping Debian's stock kernel installed in parallel

(my first draft for this report was also - marking it as RESOVLED
WORKSFORME though ;)
