Comment (by bdubbs@…):

 The kernel has:


 They are all different, but only the third one is installed, but yes, it
 calls for #include <uapi/linux/capability.h> also.  Checking an older
 kernel (3.4.1), that include is not there.  It looks like the kernel
 missed that header in the headers_install target in the Makefile.

 See also https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/38333

 We can fix it in either LFS or BLFS (libcap), but I suspect it will be
 installed as a part of the kernel headers_install target pretty soon and
 we then won't need to do anything.
