Subject[PATCH 2/2] exit_notify: kill the wrong capable(CAP_KILL) check
I can't understand why exit_notify() checks capable(CAP_KILL), but this
looks just wrong.

Whatever logic we have to reset ->exit_signal, the bad user can bypass
it if it execs the setuid application before exiting, kill the CAP_KILL
check.
