-1 (-EPERM) probably not the best choice. The verifier already has 
knowledge that a particular tracked map is an inner map or not. So 
keeping the original error code (mostly -EINVAL) is preferred I think.

Not exactly sure about the reason. Maybe with this patch, it can get 
proper support. Not 100% sure.
