Subject: [RFC PATCH 4.10 5/6] bpf: Rename fdinfo's prog_digest to prog_sha256

This makes it easier to add another digest algorithm down the road
if needed.  It also serves to force any programs that might have
been written against a kernel that had 'prog_digest' to be updated.

This shouldn't violate any stable API policies, as no released
kernel has ever had 'prog_digest'.
