Subject: [PATCH bpf v2] restore behaviour of CAP_SYS_ADMIN allowing the loading of networking bpf programs

From: Maciej Żenczykowski <maze@...gle.com>

This is a fix for a regression introduced in 5.8-rc1 by:
  commit 2c78ee898d8f10ae6fb2fa23a3fbaec96b1b7366
  'bpf: Implement CAP_BPF'

Before the above commit it was possible to load network bpf programs
with just the CAP_SYS_ADMIN privilege.

The Android bpfloader happens to run in such a configuration (it has
SYS_ADMIN but not NET_ADMIN) and creates maps and loads bpf programs
for later use by Android's netd (which has NET_ADMIN but not SYS_ADMIN).
