Subject[patch 17/58] exit_notify: kill the wrong capable(CAP_KILL) check (CVE-2009-1337)
2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com>

CVE-2009-1337

commit 432870dab85a2f69dc417022646cb9a70acf7f94 upstream.

The CAP_KILL check in exit_notify() looks just wrong, kill it.

Whatever logic we have to reset ->exit_signal, the malicious user
can bypass it if it execs the setuid application before exiting.
