Subject[PATCH] perf: Require CAP_KILL if sigtrap is requested
From
If perf_event_open() is called with another task as target and
perf_event_attr::sigtrap is set, and the target task's user does not
match the calling user, also require the CAP_KILL capability.

Otherwise, with the CAP_PERFMON capability alone it would be possible
for a user to send SIGTRAP signals via perf events to another user's
tasks. This could potentially result in those tasks being terminated if
they cannot handle SIGTRAP signals.

Fixes: 97ba62b27867 ("perf: Add support for SIGTRAP on perf events")
