    Yes. Also, I found one more bug: fsuid wasn't reset to euid -
    so, filesystem access was still possible under the old fsuid
    after setresuid(uid, uid, uid). Or was this intentional?

    Nope, this wasn't intentional; thanks for catching it!

    OK, sorry it took so long, here is the patch for 2.1.13. It adds
    the uid 0 check, clears the dumpable flag, and resets fsuid.
    setresgid() should be similar but it needs a new syscall number
    - I'm not sure what is the proper way to allocate one.

    I haven't tried running with it, but it looks good to me!!

    - Ted
