    Subject[BISECTED] commit d2a7009f breaks xkbconf
    Hi Eric.  The commit below causes a very strange error while running startx.

    While X is starting up it runs xkbcomp, which then prints "ERROR: Cannot
    open /usr/share/X11/xkb/compiled/server-0.xkm to write keyboard description"
    and then X shuts down. Reverting the commit below fixes the error:

    capabitlies: ns_capable can use the cap helpers rather than lsm call

    Just to reduce the number of places to change if we every change the LSM
    hook, use the capability helpers internally when possible.
