This series enables annotation of BPF programs in perf.

perf tool gathers information via sys_bpf and (optionally) stores them in
perf.data as headers.

Patch 1/9 fixes a minor issue in kernel;
Patch 2/9 to 4/9 introduce new helper functions and use them in perf and
     bpftool;
Patch 5/9 and 6/9 saves information of bpf program in perf_env;
Patch 7/9 adds --bpf-event options to perf-top;
Patch 8/9 enables annotation of bpf programs based on information gathered
     in 5/9 and 6/9;
Patch 9/9 handles information of short living BPF program that are loaded
     during perf-record or perf-top.

Commands tested during developments are perf-top, perf-record, perf-report,
and perf-annotate.

===================== Note on patch dependency  ========================
This set has dependency in both bpf-next tree and tip/perf/core. Current
version is developed on bpf-next tree with the following commits
cherry-picked from tip/perf/core:

(from 1/10 to 10/10)
commit 76193a94522f ("perf, bpf: Introduce PERF_RECORD_KSYMBOL")
commit d764ac646491 ("tools headers uapi: Sync tools/include/uapi/linux/perf_event.h")

commit df063c83aa2c ("tools headers uapi: Sync tools/include/uapi/linux/perf_event.h")
commit 9aa0bfa370b2 ("perf tools: Handle PERF_RECORD_KSYMBOL")
commit 45178a928a4b ("perf tools: Handle PERF_RECORD_BPF_EVENT")
commit 7b612e291a5a ("perf tools: Synthesize PERF_RECORD_* for loaded BPF programs")
commit a40b95bcd30c ("perf top: Synthesize BPF events for pre-existing loaded BPF programs")
commit 6934058d9fb6 ("bpf: Add module name [bpf] to ksymbols for bpf programs")

Jiri, Stephane, this is the patchkit I mentioned in the context of doing
away with perf.data headers and instead package everything as userspace
PERF_RECORD_ metadata events.

Song, please add Jiri and Namhyung in future perf patchkits, they are
listed as perf tools reviewers in MAINTAINANERS and Jiri also is working
on something directly related.

Thanks,

- Arnaldo

Thanks Arnaldo! I will keep Jiri and Namhyung in the loop.
