SubjectRe: [PATCH] Implement file posix capabilities
Once again, running into problems when trying this patch on SLES-10 IA64,
(Linux certify 2.6.18 #2 SMP PREEMPT Wed Nov 29 13:11:28 CST 2006 ia64)

1) replaced the ancient /lib/libcap.so.1.92 with less ancient libcap.so.1.10

2) successfully applied Serge's patch to SLES 2.6.18 sources and rebooted

3) installed Kaigai's userspace tools... no problems evident

4) ran setfcaps to see capabilities... (note Memory fault):

certify:~/libcap-1.10 # setfcaps
usage: setfcaps <capabilities> <file> ...
cap_chown, cap_dac_override, cap_dac_read_search, cap_fowner
cap_fsetid, cap_kill, cap_setgid, cap_setuid
cap_setpcap, cap_linux_immutable,
cap_net_bind_service, cap_net_broadcast
cap_net_admin, cap_net_raw, cap_ipc_lock, cap_ipc_owner
cap_sys_module, cap_sys_rawio, cap_sys_chroot, cap_sys_ptrace
cap_sys_pacct, cap_sys_admin, cap_sys_boot, cap_sys_nice
cap_sys_resource, cap_sys_time,
cap_sys_tty_config, cap_mknod
cap_lease, cap_audit_write, cap_audit_controlMemory fault

5) straced previous command:

billodo@certify:/> strace -o /tmp/straceout4 setfcaps
billodo@certify:/> cat /tmp/straceout4

6) probably can't go much beyond (5), as problems likely relate to that
segfault. Nevertheless, I tried to modify capabities for
modprobe, yielding the all too familiar error...

billodo@certify:/> modprobe fuse major-0
FATAL: Error inserting fuse (/lib/modules/2.6.18/kernel/fs/fuse/fuse.ko):
Operation not permitted
billodo@certify:/> sudo setfcaps cap_sys_module=ep /sbin/modprobe
/sbin/modprobe: Function not implemented (errno=38)
