FWIW, I find:

    const struct bpf_insn prog[] = {
        /* BPF_MOV64_REG(BPF_REG_6, BPF_REG_1) */
        { BPF_ALU64 | BPF_MOV | BPF_X, BPF_REG_6, BPF_REG_1, 0, 0 },
        /* BPF_LD_ABS(BPF_W, 0) R0 = (uint32_t)skb[0] */
        { BPF_LD | BPF_ABS | BPF_W, 0, 0, 0, 0 },
        /* BPF_ALU64_IMM(BPF_MOD, BPF_REG_0, mod) */
        { BPF_ALU64 | BPF_MOD | BPF_K, BPF_REG_0, 0, 0, mod },
        /* BPF_EXIT_INSN() */
        { BPF_JMP | BPF_EXIT, 0, 0, 0, 0 }
    };
(and all the way to make it run)

something quite unintuitive from a web server developper perspective,
simply to make SO_REUSEPORT work with forked TCP listeners (probably
as it should out of the box)...

Regards,
Yann.
