I find "local uid" to be misleading here -- I read it as "requires
system to use local user/group ids", as opposed to getting user and
group data from an external service like NIS/YP/AD.

What you're really testing for is that new files inherit the fs[ug]id of
the process.  How about we make that explicit in the name:

_require_inherit_process_fsuid()
_require_inherit_process_fsgid()

?
