I confused the two a couple of times while creating the patches, but
I'm still fairly
sure I got it right in the end:

bpf_verifier_ops is an array that gets generated by including linux/bpf_types.h.
That file has two kinds of entries:

- BPF_MAP_TYPE() entries are left out, as that macro is defined to an
empty string

- BPF_PROG_TYPE() entries are conditional depending on CONFIG_NET and
  CONFIG_BPF_EVENTS. In the configuration that produces the warning,
  both are disabled.
