drivers/net/tehuti: use proper capability check for raw IO access
commit 6203554207728f43cfb9fd48585cd6500da73d42 in mainline. Yeah, in practice they both mean "root", but Alan correctly points out that anybody who gets to do raw IO space accesses should really be using CAP_SYS_RAWIO rather than CAP_NET_ADMIN.
