Subject[PATCH v3 2/7] perf/core: open access for CAP_SYS_PERFMON privileged process
From
Date

Open access to perf_events monitoring for CAP_SYS_PERFMON privileged processes.
For backward compatibility reasons access to perf_events subsystem remains open
for CAP_SYS_ADMIN privileged processes but CAP_SYS_ADMIN usage for secure
perf_events monitoring is discouraged with respect to CAP_SYS_PERFMON capability.
