Hey Jim. I don't know if you ever figured this one out. I'm not nearly

I think one "solution" is to install libcap, which provides
sys/capability.h. Then it will skip the whole _syscall2() call. libcap

I haven't tested it, but it looks like it would do what you needed.
The comments there suggest the same.
