Subject[PATCH v4 4/4] sched/core: Add permission checks for setting the latency_nice value
Date
Since the latency_nice uses the similar infrastructure as NICE, use the
already existing CAP_SYS_NICE security checks for the latency_nice. This
should return -EPERM for the non-root user when trying to set the task
latency_nice value to any lower than the current value.
