Hm, is there a chance that instead of requiring CAP_SYS_ADMIN, a certain group
could be required (similar to hugetlb_shm_group)? Requiring CAP_SYS_ADMIN
could have the unintended consequence of io_uring requiring tasks being run
with more privileges than needed... Or some other more granular way of
granting the right to use io_uring?

ISTM that it'd be nice if e.g. a systemd service specification could allow
some services to use io_uring, without allowing it for everyone, or requiring
to run services effectively as root.
