It was already small and I'm not sure merging the flags made it more
maintainable. Its always
being a slightly painful ioctl, and hopefully any future changes add a
new ioctl esp if we want 64-bit values.

The only comment I really thought was necessary was changing the CAP
name, but since that isn't
part of the ABI (just the number) we can quickly fix it with a follow-up.
