Great, here is the new patch then.

Subject: [PATCH 1/1] file caps: update selinux xattr hooks (v4)

SELinux does not call out to its secondary module for setxattr
or removexattr mediation, as the secondary module would
incorrectly prevent writing of selinux xattrs. This means
that when selinux and capability are both loaded, admins will
be able to write file capabilities with CAP_SYS_ADMIN as before,
not with CAP_SETFCAP.

Update the selinux hooks to hardcode logic for the special
consideration for file caps. Also consolidate the handling
of non-selinux xattrs in removexattr and setxattr.
