could you also make it root only for now ?
Like we did for lru map:
         if (lru && !capable(CAP_SYS_ADMIN))
                 /* LRU implementation is much complicated than other
                  * maps.  Hence, limit to CAP_SYS_ADMIN for now.
                  */
                 return ERR_PTR(-EPERM);

trie is not that complicated, but I think socket_filters
(the only unpriv prog type today) can live a release or
two without ability to use it.

In patch 2/2 there are some comments not in networking style:
+	/*
+	 * Perform longest prefix-match on @key/@...its. That is,

As far as performance it has to be measured from datapath.
Like create tc+cls_bpf prog that does a dozen of trie lookups,
attach it to veth or tap and use
samples/pktgen/pktgen_bench_xmit_mode_netif_receive.sh
to send traffic into it.
Like: samples/bpf/test_cls_bpf.sh does.

Another alternative is to extend samples/bpf/map_perf_test
It has perf tests for most map types today (including lru)
and trie would be natural addition there.
I would prefer this latter option.

Thanks!
