Subject[patch 06/26] setkeys needs root
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Daniel Drake <dsd@gentoo.org>
This patch combines commit 0b360adbdb54d5b98b78d57ba0916bc4b8871968 (make
setkeys root-only) and commit e3f17f0f6e98f58edb13cb38810d93e6d4808e68 (only
disallow setting by users)

Because people can play games reprogramming keys and leaving traps for the
next user of the console.
