Review request for mesos, Benjamin Bannier and Jie Yu.

Bugs: MESOS-7476

Repository: mesos


In the absence of ambient capabilities, capabilities in the
effective set do not survive across execve(2). This means
that tasks attempting to make use of the LinuxInfo capability
support also need to ensure that file capabilities are set on
the file that is ultimately executed. Supporting ambient
capabilities allows the effective capabilities to survive
execve(2), so it is now possible to launch a task with limited
privilege elevations.
