What do you think about adding a new generic field, say load_flags,
to the bpf_map_def structure and a particular flag, say LOAD_F_STICKY
for this purpose? And it will be cleared for internal maps, so we will skip
them as well.

How permissive should it be? Is it ok to just print a warning on any
bpf_obj_get()
failure? Or does it make sense to skip some specific error (ENOENT) and reject
on other errors?
