    All right, call me stupid, but twhere is the "duplication" in the code you
    removed?

    I see the "security/capability.c" thing, yes, but I also look at
    "security/dummy.c", and it appears that at least for that case nobody
    would ever initialize the capabilities that we return to user space at
    all.

    So there's a bug somewhere there, and removing the duplication makes
    things worse (admittedly for a case which isn't enabled in the regular
    kernel, but still..)

    So I'd ask you to have patience with me, and send a third patch that gets
    this thing right too..
