Subject: [PATCH bpf-next 0/6] xdp: Avoid unloading xdp prog not attached by sample

This patchset tries to address the situation where:
* user loads a particular xdp sample application that does stats polling
* user loads another sample application on the same interface
* then, user sends SIGINT/SIGTERM to the app that was attached as a first one
* second application ends up with an unloaded xdp program

1st patch contains a helper libbpf function for getting the map fd by a
given map name.
2nd patch updates a bunch of xdp samples to make the use of libbpf.
Patch 3 adjusts RLIMIT_MEMLOCK for two samples touched in this patchset.
Patch 4 makes the samples behavior similar to what iproute2 does when loading
xdp prog - the "force" flag is introduced.
Patch 5 introduces the libbpf function that will query the driver from
userspace about the currently attached xdp prog id.

Use it in samples that do polling by checking the prog id in signal handler
and comparing it with previously stored one which is the scope of 6th patch.


Maciej Fijalkowski (6):
  libbpf: Add a helper for retrieving a map fd for a given name
  samples: bpf: Convert XDP samples to libbpf usage
  samples: bpf: Extend RLIMIT_MEMLOCK for xdp_{sample_pkts, router_ipv4}
  samples: bpf: Add a "force" flag to XDP samples
  libbpf: Add a support for getting xdp prog id on ifindex
  samples: bpf: Check the prog id before exiting
