Subject[patch 36/88] add some long-missing capabilities to fs_mask
2.6.28-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Serge E. Hallyn <serue@us.ibm.com>

upstream commit: 0ad30b8fd5fe798aae80df6344b415d8309342cc

When POSIX capabilities were introduced during the 2.1 Linux
cycle, the fs mask, which represents the capabilities which having
fsuid==0 is supposed to grant, did not include CAP_MKNOD and
CAP_LINUX_IMMUTABLE. However, before capabilities the privilege
to call these did in fact depend upon fsuid==0.

This patch introduces those capabilities into the fsmask,
restoring the old behavior.

See the thread starting at http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/3/11/157 for
reference.

Note that if this fix is deemed valid, then earlier kernel versions (2.4
and 2.2) ought to be fixed too.

Changelog:
[Mar 23] Actually delete old CAP_FS_SET definition...
[Mar 20] Updated against J. Bruce Fields's patch
