Which capabilities? The capabilities of the process or the capability required 
to successfully make the syscall? This would likely add a lot of text to the 
message the kernel sends. I would have to say we can't do this unless there 
is a certification requirement that we are trying to meet. Even then, maybe 
something that's a bitmap might be all we can do.

Yes. The audit program has a format_type configuration option so these can be 
written. Send the patch to me or this mail list against the latest audit 
daemon code.
