It seems that the NoNewPrivileges option messes with several things.
PAM authentication stopped working as well besides the fact that
CAP_AUDIT_WRITE is also missing in CapabilityBoundingSet.

I've opened a pull request
Although I removed NoNewPrivileges altogether, since I didn't know what
to write in the comment.

The only thing I could think of was something along the lines:

# If you want most things to stop working, set this to true

I thought this would be rather counterproductive, thus I removed it.

Maybe somebody else could enlighten me who came up with this default
setting and why it was set to true in the first place.
