    Subject[PATCH] don't allow CAP_NET_ADMIN to load non-netdev kernel modules
    Since a8f80e8ff94ecba629542d9b4b5f5a8ee3eb565c any process with
    CAP_NET_ADMIN may load any module from /lib/modules/. This doesn't mean
    that CAP_NET_ADMIN is a superset of CAP_SYS_MODULE as modules are limited
    to /lib/modules/**. However, CAP_NET_ADMIN capability shouldn't allow
    anybody load any module not related to networking.

    This patch restricts an ability of autoloading modules to netdev modules
    with explicit aliases. Currently there are only three users of the
    feature: ipip, ip_gre and sit.

    Before the patch:

    root@albatros:~# grep Cap /proc/$$/status
    CapInh: 0000000000000000
    CapPrm: fffffffc00001000
    CapEff: fffffffc00001000
    CapBnd: fffffffc00001000
    root@albatros:~# lsmod | grep xfs
    root@albatros:~# ifconfig xfs
    xfs: error fetching interface information: Device not found
    root@albatros:~# lsmod | grep xfs
    xfs 767011 0
    exportfs 4226 2 xfs,nfsd

    After:

    root@albatros:~# grep Cap /proc/$$/status
    CapInh: 0000000000000000
    CapPrm: ffffffffffffffff
    CapEff: ffffffffffffffff
    CapBnd: ffffffffffffffff
    root@albatros:~# lsmod | grep scsi_wait_scan
    root@albatros:~# ifconfig scsi_wait_scan
    scsi_wait_scan: error fetching interface information: Device not found
    root@albatros:~# lsmod | grep scsi_wait_scan
    root@albatros:~# modprobe scsi_wait_scan
    root@albatros:~# lsmod | grep scsi_wait_scan
    scsi_wait_scan 829 0
