The original set_dumpable passes suid_dumpable, which was
exposed via /proc/sys/fs/suid_dumpable and defined as int.
It will make sense to define suid_dumpable as an unsigned int instead.

Would you like me to redefine suid_dumpable as unsigned int
in sysctl.c in the patch revision as a separate clean up patch?
