    This probably causes userspace damage:

    dbus:
    prctl(0x8, 0x1, 0, 0, 0) = -1 EINVAL (Invalid argument)

    named:
    named: -u with Linux threads not supported: requires kernel support for
    prctl(PR_SET_KEEPCAPS)
    prctl(0x8, 0x1, 0, 0, 0) = -1 EINVAL (Invalid argument)

    ntpd:
    prctl(0x8, 0x1, 0xffffffffffffffa8, 0x1, 0) = -1 EINVAL (Invalid argument)
    prctl(0x8, 0x1, 0, 0, 0) = -1 EINVAL (Invalid argument)

    $ grep CONFIG_SECURITY .config
    # CONFIG_SECURITY is not set
    # CONFIG_SECURITY_FILE_CAPABILITIES is not set
