    Fix failure in setnumcapabilities001 (#12728) · 2722cd55
    Simon Marlow authored
    The value of enabled_capabilities can change across a call to
    requestSync(), and we were erroneously using an old value, causing
    things to go wrong later.  It manifested as an assertion failure, I'm
    not sure whether there are worse consequences or not, but we should
    get this fix into 8.0.2 anyway.
    
    The failure didn't happen for me because it only shows up on machines
    with fewer than 4 processors, due to the new logic to enable -qn
    automatically.  I've bumped the test parameter 8 to make it more
    likely to exercise that code.
    
    Test Plan: Ran setnumcapabilities001 many times
