Andrew, Serge

The attached patch (e3d27bcb07485a6c8927c8e4f5483d35a99680c3) adds 64-bit capability support to the kernel. This version of the patch is designed to apply against the 2.6.23-mm1 tree.

FWIW libcap-2.00 supports this change (and earlier capability formats)

Cheers

Andrew

Note: to apply this patch against Linus' upstream kernel, you will first have to undo this other patch from Serge:

 Subject: [PATCH] capabilities: clean up file capability reading

It seems that this patch has made it into 2.6.24-rc1, but it is not present in 2.6.23-mm1.
