There's no way to keep capabilities targeted at the host.  If for
whatever reason you want to drop capabilities toward the container
itself, you can still use lxc.cap.*, but I don't know of anyone
doing that.

(It could in fact be a way to prevent some of the otherwise increased
kernel surface area)
