SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 2/2] modules:capabilities: add a per-task modules autoload restriction

Sorry, the magic 'netdev-' prefix is a crawling horror. To do this
properly, you need to hand the capability (if any) from the
request_module() call. Probably by adding a new request_module_cap and
making request_module() call that, then fixing up the callers.
