When I cat module parameter 'capabilities' by sysfs, it displays as
follows. It's better to add a newline for easy reading.

root@syzkaller:~# cat /sys/module/ocfs2_dlmfs/parameters/capabilities
bast stackglueroot@syzkaller:~#

Hi,

I am afraid that doing so might introduce a compatible risk into exited 
systems which reply ocfs2/dlmfs.

We can't guarantee that no system management tools is using the 
information reported from this file.

Basically, ocfs2-tools works of top of it. But after a quick glance at 
the source, I didn't see side effect if this path applied. Better you 
can do some test if this patch breaks ocfs2-tools.

Still my suggestion is that we don't try to touch this file as what I 
explained above.

Thanks,
Changwei
