Subject[PATCH 3/3] exporting capability code/name pairs (try 2nd)
We can apply this patch to libcap.

This patch enables setcap command to print the list
of capabilities running kernel supported, if the kernel
exports capability code/name pairs.
It is useful to confirm the name of capability when setting.

Thanks,
