    Subject[PATCH 6/6] file capabilities: remove needless (?) bprm_clear_caps calls
    Date
    Andrew Morgan, if you have a moment, please do take a close look
    and make sure I'm not doing anything stupid/wrong in the cleanups!
    However ltp shows no difference with and without the patchset.

    Following are the kernel sizes after some of the patches.

    original, pre-patch, with file capabilities compiled out:
    text data bss dec hex filename
    4188468 234432 316472 4739372 48512c vmlinux

    original, pre-patch, with file capabilities compiled in:
    4189356 234432 316472 4740260 4854a4 vmlinux

    plain with fcaps always-on:
    4189392 234456 316472 4740320 4854e0 vmlinux

    with non-inline cap_safe_nice:
    4189112 234456 316472 4740040 4853c8 vmlinux

    with cleaned-up setcap:
    4189120 234456 316472 4740048 4853d0 vmlinux

    with needless check for target!=current removed from cap_capset:
    4189104 234456 316472 4740032 4853c0 vmlinux

    with needless(?) bprm_clear_caps calls removed:
    4189088 234456 316472 4740016 4853b0 vmlinux


    thanks,
    -serge
