It isn't immediately obvious to me why simply obtaining a io_uring fd
from io_uring_setup() would present a problem, as the security
relevant operations that are possible with that io_uring fd *should*
still be controlled by other LSM hooks.  Can you help me understand
what security issue you are trying to resolve with this control?
