[vdr] Capabilities

Hello,

I've problems with my statusleds plugin. If vdr is not running as root
all capabilities are dropped - except the one for setting the system
time.

My plugin wants to set the keyboard leds with the ioctl KDSETLED on
/dev/console. Unfortunately this ioctl requires one more capability.

Is there any way to get this capability? Should we extend the plugin
interface with a possibility for the plugins to specify needed caps?

Greetings,
Bernd
