As we had discussed, We do have a security hook as well:

https://lore.kernel.org/bpf/20200324180652.GA11855@chromium.org/

The bpf_prog hook which can check for BPF_PROG_TYPE_LSM and implement
module specific logic for LSM programs. I thougt that was okay?

Kees was in favor of keeping the CAP_MAC_ADMIN check here:

https://lore.kernel.org/bpf/202003241133.16C02BE5B@keescook

If you feel strongly and Kees agrees, we can remove the CAP_MAC_ADMIN
check here, but given that we already have a security hook that meets
the requirements, we probably don't need another one.
