I spent some time this morning/afternoon playing with the io_uring
audit filtering capability and with your audit userspace
ghau-iouring-filtering.v1.0 branch it appears to work correctly.  Yes,
the userspace tooling isn't quite 100% yet (e.g. `auditctl -l` doesn't
map the io_uring ops correctly), but I know you mentioned you have a
number of fixes/improvements still as a work-in-progress there so I'm
not too concerned.  The important part is that the kernel pieces look
to be working correctly.

As usual, if you notice anything awry while playing with the userspace
changes please let me know.
