Check API - permissions/authorisation

One thing that has come up in discussions around CI and Patchwork is
permissions for the checks API.

What permissions are required for a user to create a check?
I can't find anything in the docs to tell me for sure.

I know that admin permissions are sufficient, and I have been unreliably
informed that maintainership is sufficient.

What actually is required? We probably want to make this reasonably
granular so that, for example, the 0-day bot can be given the ability to
create checks without needing people to trust them with any other rights.
