Commit Message

Richard Palethorpe May 15, 2018, 11 a.m. UTC
The LTP is usually run as root, which allows read_all_dev to read files which
are usually protected from being read at random. This patch introduces the -p
switch to read_all which is used to drop privileges (switch to the nobody
user) for the read_all_dev test.

If -p is set, but the current user does not have the capabilities to change
the uid and gid, then the test will continue under the current user. This
allows the most common scenarios to work as expected, but may cause
difficulties for someone running the LTP under a semi-privileged user.
