Patch to drop capabilities

Forgot to clear the bounding set in previous patch.
Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2009-08-17 05:05:43 EDT
Could you please send this upstream to the bluez mailing-list?
The address is linux-bluetooth@vger.kernel.org

Patch to drop capabilities

This patch reworks the configure part in order to be easier to upstream.
Comment 4 Steve Grubb 2009-08-31 12:23:29 EDT
Also, this patch needs to have Buildrequires: libcap-ng-devel added to the spec file.
Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2009-09-16 10:12:06 EDT
Can you please make sure this gets sent upstream?

Note that the configure checks would be easier if libcap-ng installed a pkg-config file...
Comment 6 Steve Grubb 2009-09-16 10:20:11 EDT
Yes, I will send the patch upstream soon. I just finished a code review and have a few suggestions for upstream. I wanted to present the code review findings at about the same time as this patch while people are thinking about security fixes.
Comment 7 Steve Grubb 2009-09-25 16:53:47 EDT
Patch against 4.54 was sent upstream + some bug fixes.
Comment 8 Bastien Nocera 2009-10-05 06:14:41 EDT
Fixed in rawhide for F-13:
