Subject: klogd: EPERM


It looks like unprivileged klogd doesn't work with OpenVZ's syslog
hardening patch.  Unprivileged daemon gets -EPERM on read() from
/proc/kmsg as it is handled as syslog(2, ...).  It still works with
upstream kernel as all syslog interfaces check permission on open()
only, not on read()/etc:;a=commit;h=002345925e6c45861f60db6f4fc6236713fd8847

I suppose we need this patch for Owl, both for current and stable.
