AIX capabilities not set

we're in the process of setting up large-page support on IBM regattas,
but for large-page support the users have to have a set of extra 
capabilities (CAP_BYPASS_RAC_VMM,CAP_PROPAGATE). This are configured
on a per user basis by listing which capability each user have in

Unfortunately they don't get set when the users log in via OpenSSH
(3.1p1). Does anybody know what changes are needed for OpenSSH to
support this feature of AIX? I imagine it could be achieved by using
'UseLogin' (but I'd prefer not to, and anyway it fails when I try to
enable it).
