So I can see the reason to run fuzz testing as root, but I have to
admit to hating the "special config option for this" approach.

I'd *much* rather see some way to just lock down certain things
individually. The patch in here just added the config option, which is
the least interesting part.

The things that that config option then would want to disable - those
are the things that maybe we want to have a way for the system admin
just generally say "disable this".

Nothing to do with fuzzing, imho.
