Subject[patch 04/32] nfsd: nfsd should drop CAP_MKNOD for non-root
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: J. Bruce Fields <bfields@citi.umich.edu>

commit 76a67ec6fb79ff3570dcb5342142c16098299911 upstream.

Since creating a device node is normally an operation requiring special
privilege, Igor Zhbanov points out that it is surprising (to say the
least) that a client can, for example, create a device node on a
filesystem exported with root_squash.

So, make sure CAP_MKNOD is among the capabilities dropped when an nfsd
thread handles a request from a non-root user.
