Subject: [PATCH v1 0/2] bpf: add longest prefix match map

This patch set adds a longest prefix match algorithm that can be used
to match IP addresses to a stored set of ranges. It is exposed as a
bpf map type.
Internally, data is stored in an unbalanced tree of nodes that has a
maximum height of n, where n is the prefixlen the trie was created
Not that this has nothing to do with fib or fib6 and is in no way meant
to replace or share code with it. It's rather a much simpler
implementation that is specifically written with bpf maps in mind.
Patch 1/2 adds the implementation, and 2/2 an extensive test suite.
Feedback is much appreciated.


rfc -> v1:
	* Add __rcu pointer annotations to make sparse happy
	* Fold _lpm_trie_find_target_node() into its only caller
	* Fix some minor documentation issues
