In order to increase the number of supplemental groups a user can be in,
one needs to bump NGROUPS_MAX in the sources. This will require a
rebuild of the kernel but also of the userland tools that use
This could be made less intrusive if the userland tools would use
sysconf(_SC_NGROUPS_MAX) instead. Of course this means that all those
tools that currently use static arrays initialized to NGROUPS_MAX + 1
need to be redone dynamically...
