Subject: [PATCH v2] Allow UDP cmsghdrs through io_uring

This patch adds PROTO_CMSG_DATA_ONLY to inet_dgram_ops and inet6_dgram_ops so that UDP_SEGMENT (GSO) and UDP_GRO can be used through io_uring.

GSO and GRO are vital to bring QUIC servers on par with TCP throughputs, and together offer a higher
throughput gain than io_uring alone (rate of data transit
considering), thus io_uring is presently the lesser performance choice.

GSO is about +~63% and GRO +~82%.

this patch closes that loophole.
