I fixed this missing check_reg_arg() check, addressed feedback for
other patches, rebased it and pushed it:
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/ast/bpf.git/log/

Also replaced dump into syslog from verifier with print into user supplied
buffer, so that user space can see why verifier rejected the program.
The more I play with it the more I like fd-based user interface. Cannot
thank enough Andy for suggesting it :)
Currently map_id is still there as kernel internal id that programs are
using to access maps. I'll try to replace it with direct pointer.
That will save one idr_find() lookup in critical path. That's a good
reason to add new 16-byte eBPF instruction. It will be
"load 64-bit immediate" that we've discussed before.
