Subject[PATCH 7/8] p9auth: add cap_node timeout
Date
From: Serge E. Hallyn <serue@us.ibm.com>

Mark each caphash entry with the current time. When a new caphash is
added, any entries which were added more than two minutes ago are
discarded.

We may want to make two minutes configurable, or may want to also
discard entries if more than N entries are on the list (to prevent
a forced OOM by a misbehaving privileged process). The purpose
of this patch is only to prevent gradually consuming more and more
memory due to "legitimate" unused entries.
