I just found that I could not do "dmesg" as normal user in a Leap 15.3
installation. I'm used to be able to do this from my Factory machines.
Investigation showed, that Leap's kernel sets
CONFIG_SECURITY_DMESG_RESTRICT=y while the Factory kernel (at least
kernel-vanilla and kernel-default from Kernel:HEAD) does not.
I do not care which default is chosen, but for consistency I'd suggest
to settle for one of the two possible options ;-)
