That's only for the OPENAT2 case, which we might want to use in future,
but there's a lot of work required to have async opens in Samba.

But I have a experimental module that, just use READV, WRITEV and FSYNC
with io-uring in order to avoid our userspace helper threads.

And that won't work anymore with the change as Samba change
current_cred() very often switch between (at least) 2 identities
root and the user. That will change the pointer of current_cred() each time.

I mean I could work around the check by using IORING_SETUP_SQPOLL,
but I'd like to avoid that.
