Upgrading skopeo from 1.2.0-1 -> 1.2.0-2 (adding the containers-common dependency) breaks all container runs when the in-container user is specified.

Additional info:
* skopeo 1.2.0-2
* no additional config

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a docker image:

$ cat <<EOF > Dockerfile
FROM alpine
USER 1001


$ podman build . -t test

2. Run it as is with skopeo 1.2.0-2
$ podman run -it --entrypoint=whoami test
Error: capset: Operation not permitted: OCI runtime permission denied error

3. If you specify a user override, it's fine
$ podman run -it --entrypoint=whoami --user root test

4. Running the same comamnd as in (2) with skopeo 1.2.0-1 gives the expected results:
$podman run -it --entrypoint=whoami test
This task depends upon

@Tumi: Thanks for the report!

Can you please try with commenting `default_capabilities` and `default_sysctls` in /etc/containers/containers.conf (and possibly also /usr/share/containers/containers.conf).
Looking at  FS#68742  (and the linked upstream report) I guess that all of this should actually be commented by default.

It looks like upstream made the defaults more strict and uncommented them fairly recently [1] (thanks for opening the upstream issue @rzl).

I will patch the default config to comment the defaults so that they fall back to the internally defined ones, which should work out-of-the-box.

@Tumi please test with containers-common 0.29.0-3
