When CAP_IPC_LOCK is set we should not check locked memory against
rlimit as what has been implemented in mlock() and documented in
Documentation/admin-guide/perf-security.rst:

"
RLIMIT_MEMLOCK and perf_event_mlock_kb resource constraints are ignored
for processes with the CAP_IPC_LOCK capability.
"

Fixes: 4c8cf31885f6 ("vhost: introduce vDPA-based backend")
