Previously, the only capability effectively required to operate on the
/proc/scsi interface was CAP_DAC_OVERRIDE (or for some other files,
having an fsuid of GLOBAL_ROOT_UID was enough). This means that
semi-privileged processes could interfere with core components of a
system (such as causing a DoS by removing the underlying SCSI device of
the host's / mount).

There should be an
#include <linux/capability.h>
somewhere... even if some other header file is dragging it in (which
it must be), the preferred style is to always explicitly #include
header files that are used.
