can you expand on why this might be a problem, as far I can tell the
syscall is in fs/open.c

it seems very simple to me

asmlinkage long sys_vhangup(void)
if (capable(CAP_SYS_TTY_CONFIG)) {
return 0;
return -EPERM;
basically, we call tty_vhangup on the process's tty.

if tty_vhangup was the syscall, I could see this being a problem, but as
sys_vhangup can only operate on the what the task_struct has, how is it
a problem?
