This patch adds a new bpf helper BPF_FUNC_tcp_check_probe_timer
"int bpf_check_tcp_probe_timer(struct tcp_bpf_sock *tp, u32 when_us)".
It is added to BPF_PROG_TYPE_CGROUP_SKB typed bpf_prog which currently
can be attached to the ingress and egress path.

To ensure it is only called from BPF_CGROUP_INET_EGRESS, the
attr->expected_attach_type must be specified as BPF_CGROUP_INET_EGRESS
during load time if the prog uses this new helper.
The newly added prog->enforce_expected_attach_type bit will also be set
if this new helper is used.  This bit is for backward compatibility reason
because currently prog->expected_attach_type has been ignored in
BPF_PROG_TYPE_CGROUP_SKB.  During attach time,
prog->expected_attach_type is only enforced if the
prog->enforce_expected_attach_type bit is set.
i.e. prog->expected_attach_type is only enforced if this new helper
is used by the prog.

The function forces when_us to be at least TCP_TIMEOUT_MIN (currently
2 jiffies) and no more than TCP_RTO_MIN (currently 200ms).

When using a bpf_prog to limit the egress bandwidth of a cgroup,
it can happen that we drop a packet of a connection that has no
packets out. In this case, the connection may not retry sending
the packet until the probe timer fires. Since the default value
of the probe timer is at least 200ms, this can introduce link
underutiliation (i.e. the cgroup egress bandwidth being smaller
than the specified rate) thus increased tail latency.
This helper function allows for setting a smaller probe timer.
