Subject: root_plug: use cap_task_prctl
Date: Mon, 10 Mar 2008 15:57:20 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

With the introduction of per-process securebits, the capabilities-related
prctl callbacks were moved into cap_task_prctl().  Have root_plug use
cap_task_prctl() so that PR_SET_KEEPCAPS is defined.

(Andrew, I didn't put patch numbers here, but there are only two of
these.  These are the LSMs which internalize capabilities.  The dummy
module will continue to not support PR_SET_KEEPCAPS).
