uid, pid, and loginuid are the only things collected by netlink for the 
sender's credentials. Another app could reuse the pid by the time the netlink 
message is processed. The lookup will succeed, but the check is against the 
wrong process.

We make no requirements for this anywhere else. We just need to filter against 
the netlink credentials since that is all we know to be true.
