I'm glad you noticed it, because it is backwards!

should be

if (!cap_issubset(CAP_FULL_SET, current->cap_effective) ||

The idea is that I don't care to audit
1) full set &&
2) this is root &&
3) root should have a full set

This would still consider a root without a full set because the bset had
been changed to be an interesting event.  I'm fine with that.

I'll send -v3 once I hear comments on everything else....
