    The linux-privs@mit.edu has been working on it: Andrew Morgan's last set
    of patches to support all of this (including persistent filesystem
    capability masks on ext2) are on

    ftp://ftp.guardian.no/pub/free/linux/capabilities

    and the 2.2 kernel already understands basic per-process capability
    sets.
