Fwiw, I have done this based on tools/lib/bpf/hashmap.h in CLs
following on from this patch set. I'm holding off sending so I can
rebase on acme's perf/next when the CLs acked by Jirka land:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200503221650.GA1916255@krava/
The libbpf dependency for a hashmap is counter intuitive, so maybe
there's something better to do there.

Thanks,
Ian
