I think if you audit the io_uring syscalls and find a code path that
is not already mediated by a LSM hook (potentially at an earlier point
during setup / fd creation) that accesses any shared resource or
performs a privileged action, we would be open to adding a LSM hook to
cover that code path. But you'd have to do the work to identify and
propose such cases.
