Personally I'd like to see all of the capability changes done as a
separate patch from the ptrace changes.
I'm afraid the patch series will not be bisectable (capabilities and
ptrace code are very interconnected), but I'll try.

Just add the new functions, describe them, document them, but don't use them. Then use them in the second patch.
