Subject: [RFC PATCH 4/7] tun: free bpf_program by bpf_prog_put instead of bpf_prog_destroy

The module never creates the bpf program with bpf_prog_create
so it shouldn't free it with bpf_prog_destroy.
The program is obtained by bpf_prog_get and should be freed
by bpf_prog_put. For BPF_PROG_TYPE_SOCKET_FILTER both
methods do the same but for other program types they don't.
