    revert "capabilities: clean up file capability reading"
    
    Revert b68680e4731abbd78863063aaa0dca2a6d8cc723 to make way for the next
    patch: "Add 64-bit capability support to the kernel".
    
    We want to keep the vfs_cap_data.data[] structure, using two 'data's for
    64-bit caps (and later three for 96-bit caps), whereas
    b68680e4731abbd78863063aaa0dca2a6d8cc723 had gotten rid of the 'data' struct
    made its members inline.
    
    The 64-bit caps patch keeps the stack abuse fix at get_file_caps(), which 
was
    the more important part of that patch.
