       privgrp() - format of privileged values

       sets a mask of privileges, and getprivgrp(2) returns an array of struc‐
       tures giving privileged group assignments on a per-group-ID basis  (see
       getprivgrp(2)).	 associates a kernel capability with a group ID.  This
       allows subletting of superuser-like privileges to members of a particu‐
       lar  group  or  groups.	 The constants and structures needed for these
       system calls are defined in

       Privileges are as follows:

	      Allows access to the     system call (see rtprio(2)).

	      Allows access to the     system call (see plock(2)).

	      Allows access to the     system calls (see chown(2)).

	      Permits the use of the   system call for setting locks on	 files
				       open for reading only (see lockf(2)).

	      Permits the use of the   and  system  calls for changing respec‐
				       tively the real user ID and real	 group
				       ID of a process (see setuid(2)).

	      Permits the use of the   system	call  for  changing  processor
				       binding,	 locality  domain  binding  or
				       launch	policy	 of   a	 process  (see

	      Allows access to the     and to set POSIX.4 realtime  priorities
				       (see rtsched(2)).

	      Permits the use of       for  forcing  the target process to run
				       serially with other processes that  are
				       also  marked  by	 this system call (see

	      Permits certain administrative operations in the
				       Instant	Capacity  (iCAP)  product  for
				       deactivation  and  reactivation of pro‐
				       cessors.	 See that product's documenta‐
				       tion for more information.

	      Permits certain administrative operations in
				       Process Resource Manager (PRM) product.
				       See that	 product's  documentation  for
				       more information.

	      Allows change to the system pset configuration
				       (see pset_create(2)).

       Privileges  are	described  in  a multiword mask.  The value of the for
       each privilege is interpreted as a bit index (counting from 1).	Thus a
       group  ID  can  have several different privileges associated with it by
       having different bits ORed into the mask.

       The system is configured with a specified maximum number of groups with
       special	privileges.   defines  this  maximum.  Of this maximum, one is
       reserved for global privileges  (granted	 to  all  processes)  and  the
       remainder can be assigned to actual group IDs.

       defines	the  size  of  the  multiword mask used in defining privileges
       associated with a group ID.

       Privileges are returned to the user from the system call in an array of
       structures  of  type  The  structure associates a multiword mask with a
       group ID.  The privgrp_map structure contains the fields:

       where priv_groupno contains  the	 group	ID  (see  setprivgrp(2)),  and
       priv_mask contains the privilege mask associated with priv_groupno.
