Please tell me how to do root-free (capabilities-based) system without
xattrs in rpm - doing this outside upgrade procedure leaves window for
making system unusable in cases like power failure.

Now we're using some dumb solutions like 'admin' group for SUID ICMP ping
instead attaching proper file capabilities. In long term we should
remove ALL SUID binaries from distribution, as this approach is broken
by design and should be obsoleted 10 years ago.
