What header should I include? It worked without any additional header,
but I'd like to make it clean. I searched the kernel sources, seems that
capable is defined in linux/sched.h, but some files are using capable()
without including it. Including linux/capability.h would sound good, but
actually this header doesn't define capable() and does not include
linux/sched.h either.
