Capabilities are an important security mechanism on Linux because they
allow programs to run with fewer privileges. I would like to propose that
we enable security labels by default on filesystems like ext4. This is
done by selecting the following kernel build option:

	File systems -> (The Extended 4 (ext4) filesystem) Ext4 Security

I have already submitted a pull request which should allow
our build servers to provide the corresponding libcap utilities. See:
