Subject[PATCH v3 5/7] trace/bpf_trace: open access for CAP_SYS_PERFMON privileged process
From
Date

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