Subject[PATCH 06/44] kernel/ksysfs.c: expose file_caps_enabled in sysfs
Date
From: Ludwig Nussel <ludwig.nussel@suse.de>

A kernel booted with no_file_caps allows to install fscaps on a binary
but doesn't actually honor the fscaps when running the binary. Userspace
currently has no sane way to determine whether installing fscaps
actually has any effect. Since parsing /proc/cmdline is fragile this
patch exposes the current setting (1 or 0) via /sys/kernel/fscaps
