The later SRPM package includes the cap_file.c.
It will be a good sample of using libcaps.

And this has a version number built in, as Eric was asking for.

_LINUX_CAPABILITY_VERSION defined as 0x19980330 is used for this.
Is there a possibility to be changed future, isn't it?
For example, when we think 32-bit width is not enough.

My tools were purely for testing, and just kept everything as simple as
possible. So I'll happily port the kernel patch to use your tools :)

For that matter I see you have your own kernel patch. Would you mind
submitting that to lkml as an alternative to mine?

I have no plan to submit now. It'll be called "Re-investment of wheel".
# In addition, I'm currently busy to hack PostgreSQL. :D

I hope to confirm one more point.
Endian conpatibility is considered in the patches?
