This patch set teaches libbpf how to declare and initialize ARRAY_OF_MAPS and
HASH_OF_MAPS maps. See patch #3 for all the details.

Patch #1 refactors parsing BTF definition of map to re-use it cleanly for
inner map definition parsing.

Patch #2 refactors map creation and destruction logic for reuse. It also fixes
existing bug with not closing successfully created maps when bpf_object map
creation overall fails.

Patch #3 adds support for an extension of BTF-defined map syntax, as well as
parsing, recording, and use of relocations to allow declaratively initialize
outer maps with references to inner maps.

Andrii Nakryiko (3):
  libbpf: refactor BTF-defined map definition parsing logic
  libbpf: refactor map creation logic and fix cleanup leak
  libbpf: add BTF-defined map-in-map support
