Subject[PATCH 2/2] file capabilities: turn on by default
Date
Now that file capabilities can be turned off at boot, go ahead
and compile them into the kernel by default by making
CONFIG_SECURITY_FILE_CAPABILITIES=y the default.

Note that the boot flag no_file_caps must be specified to turn
file capabilities off, as by default they are on. So the
default behavior is in fact changed.

This enables filesystem capabilities, allowing you to give
binaries a subset of root's powers without using setuid 0.
