* Regular grant.
* This function is used to grant the capabilities from one cspace to other.
* Suppose A and B have an ipc channel that connects them. The operating
* system (user of libcap) could provide the following mechanism for A to
* grant rights to B.
* A does an "ipc send" and stores a2 in a special ipc message buffer,
* and B does a receive and stores b2 in its ipc receive buffer. When the
* operating system sees that, it would carry out the grant
* using libcap library in the following way:
* 1. Resolve process A to cspace A
* 2. Resolve process B to cspace B
* 3. Invoke grant function in the library (libcap):
