Subject: BUG? Non-root user can configure traffic shaper (2.2.13)

Hi!

Standard traffic shaper in 2.2.13 kernel is a very simple and cool thing.

But speed of shapered device successfully configured by non-root user.
This is very bad...

Also, traffic shaper works correctly only when it's compiled as a module.
But I can select in "make menuconfig" to compile shaper into kernel
(2.2.13). So, result is kernel trap when first use of shaped interface.
