Yes, true, the definition moved to another header from 2.6.35 -> 2.6.36
The failure seems to affect only the 2011 cs lite ppc toolchain.
Even though it's based on 2.6.38 headers something bad was done to it:

freescale-2011.03 $ find . -type f -exec grep --with-filename
XATTR_NAME_CAPS {} \; -> nothing (yes i did '-name *.h' first but to my
amazement nothing returned so i went all-out).

So as a POC i've built a basic toolchain with libcap
enabled and everything went fine.

My professional opinion is that the codesourcery powerpc 2011.03
toolchain is messed up.
So we either blacklist it or do users a favor and just deprecate/remove it.
