Subject: [PATCH bpf 1/2] bpf: support PTR_TO_MEM{,_OR_NULL} register spilling

Add support for pointer to mem register spilling, to allow the verifier
to track pointer to valid memory addresses. Such pointers are returned
for example by a successful call of the bpf_ringbuf_reserve helper.

This patch was suggested as a solution by Yonghong Song.

The patch was partially contibuted by CyberArk Software, Inc.

Fixes: 457f44363a88 ("bpf: Implement BPF ring buffer and verifier
support for it")
