I would be tempted to agree. It would probably be easier to just give uid=0
in the context, control over its /16 worth of quotas.

Is there a better way of chcontext() passing *flags* through than using
capabilities. Another two example of where this is of use is:
It would be very useful to have this as an /option/ although I don't really
think of it as a capability (maybe I'm wrong). `/proc/sys' entries perhaps?

We should get the automatic allocated ctx-ids to start at 1024, or even just
128, which will stop anyone getting `stung'/confused and ranting about it.

Another one: Does `statfs()' need patching to return the ctx-hard-quota as
the vroot disk size?
