I don't think non-negative is correct, it has to be set to a positive
number. non-negative would include 0, which isn't correct.

Should also include a note on if these types of file are used, they
won't work in anything but io_uring. That's obvious to us, but should be
noted that they then only live within the realm of the ring itself, not
the system as a whole.
