Greg/Serge: Sorry for the delay. I am okay with the patches in
general. Thanks for making the reaping of old capabilities change as
well along with these.

The only comment I have is that it would be nice to have a README file
in the p9auth directory describing these changes to the semantics.
Especially since we are handling groups, file system checks etc. which
is going through the capability string, it would be easier and helpful
to understand if there is some basic documentation on each of these

Also, I don't know if you want to further get them looked by someone
more knowledgeable to comment on the implications of modifying/moving
the set*id functions over but they look alright to me.

I have requested Eric too a couple of days ago to take a look at these
patches if he finds time.
