v3:
 - added IORING_RESTRICTION_SQE_FLAGS_ALLOWED and
   IORING_RESTRICTION_SQE_FLAGS_REQUIRED
 - removed IORING_RESTRICTION_FIXED_FILES_ONLY opcode
 - enabled restrictions only when the rings start

RFC v2: https://lore.kernel.org/io-uring/20200716124833.93667-1-sgarzare@redhat.com

RFC v1: https://lore.kernel.org/io-uring/20200710141945.129329-1-sgarzare@redhat.com

Following the proposal that I send about restrictions [1], I wrote this series
to add restrictions in io_uring.

I also wrote helpers in liburing and a test case (test/register-restrictions.c)
available in this repository:
https://github.com/stefano-garzarella/liburing (branch: io_uring_restrictions)

Just to recap the proposal, the idea is to add some restrictions to the
operations (sqe opcode and flags, register opcode) to safely allow untrusted
applications or guests to use io_uring queues.

The first patch changes io_uring_register(2) opcodes into an enumeration to
keep track of the last opcode available.

The second patch adds IOURING_REGISTER_RESTRICTIONS opcode and the code to
handle restrictions.

The third patch adds IORING_SETUP_R_DISABLED flag to start the rings disabled,
allowing the user to register restrictions, buffers, files, before to start
processing SQEs.

Comments and suggestions are very welcome.

Thank you in advance,
Stefano
