Ok, I have squashed and pushed the audit userspace support for iouring:
There are test rpms for f35 here:

userspace v2 changelog:
- check for watch before adding perm
- update manpage to include filesystem filter
- update support for the uring filter list: doc, -U op, op names
- add support for the AUDIT_URINGOP record type
- add uringop support to ausearch
- add uringop support to aureport
- lots of bug fixes

"auditctl -a uring,always -S ..." will now throw an error and require
"-U" instead.

Same for userspace...  I think I already see one mapping uring op names
in ausearch...
