Can you please add it to the existing benchmark runner instead, e.g.,
along the other bench_trigger benchmarks? No need to re-implement
benchmark setup. And also that would also allow to compare existing
ways of cheaply triggering a program vs this new _USER program?

If the performance is not significantly better than other ways, do you
think it still makes sense to add a new BPF program type? I think
triggering KPROBE/TRACEPOINT from bpf_prog_test_run() would be very
nice, maybe it's possible to add that instead of a new program type?
Either way, let's see comparison with other program triggering
mechanisms first.
