Subject: [PATCH v2 net-next 0/5] Add bpf support to set sk_bound_dev_if

The recently added VRF support in Linux leverages the bind-to-device
API for programs to specify an L3 domain for a socket. While
SO_BINDTODEVICE has been around for ages, not every ipv4/ipv6 capable
program has support for it. Even for those programs that do support it,
the API requires processes to be started as root (CAP_NET_RAW) which
is not desirable from a general security perspective.

This patch set leverages Daniel Mack's work to attach bpf programs to
a cgroup:

to provide a capability to set sk_bound_dev_if for all AF_INET{6}
sockets opened by a process in a cgroup when the sockets are allocated.

This capability enables running any program in a VRF context and is key
to deploying Management VRF, a fundamental configuration for networking
gear, with any Linux OS installation.

- addressed Daniel's comments: dropped the bpf_sock_store_u32 helper
  and used bpf_prog_run_save_cb on the code move

- picked up Mickaël Salaün's subtype patch with a few small tweaks

- removed new prog type in favor of a subtype on the BPF_PROG_TYPE_CGROUP
  from Daniel Mack's patch set

- moved the filter hook from sk_alloc to inet{6}_create

David Ahern (5):
  bpf: Refactor cgroups code in prep for new type
  bpf: Add eBPF program subtype and is_valid_subtype() verifier
  bpf: Add new cgroup attach type to enable sock modifications
  samples: bpf: Add prog_subtype to bpf_prog_load
  samples: bpf: add userspace example for modifying sk_bound_dev_if
