Subject[PATCH v5 07/10] powerpc/perf: open access for CAP_PERFMON privileged process
From
Date

Open access to monitoring for CAP_PERFMON privileged processes.
For backward compatibility reasons access to the monitoring remains
open for CAP_SYS_ADMIN privileged processes but CAP_SYS_ADMIN usage
for secure monitoring is discouraged with respect to CAP_PERFMON
capability. Providing the access under CAP_PERFMON capability singly,
without the rest of CAP_SYS_ADMIN credentials, excludes chances to
misuse the credentials and makes the operations more secure.
