Hi Bakul,

Privilege escalation should be done externally.

Regardless of whether it's a good idea, since the kernel is using
effective user and group IDs for testing permissions, if a user ID is
used to determine what files to access then it should be the effective
one rather than the real one.  Do you agree?

Cheers, Ralph.
