That's designed for portability initially, it means we can just run bytecode
without compile script file everywhere, especially when compilation  is
a heavily task for some embedded platform, even though ktap compilation
is extremely fast.

I doubt maybe there will have this bytecode portability requirement in future?

I will take more check in kp_bcread.c file, will fix in next version.

Thanks.
