good point

Subject: [PATCH 7/9] Simplify bound checks in capabilities for copy_from_user
CC: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org>

The capabilities syscall has a copy_from_user() call where gcc currently
cannot prove to itself that the copy is always within bounds.

This patch adds a very explicity bound check to prove to gcc that
this copy_from_user cannot overflow its destination buffer.
