Subject: [PATCH v7 bpf-next 03/16] bpf: introduce new mov32 variant for doing explicit zero extension

The encoding for this new variant is based on BPF_X format. "imm" field was
0 only, now it could be 1 which means doing zero extension unconditionally

  .code = BPF_ALU | BPF_MOV | BPF_X
  .dst_reg = DST
  .src_reg = SRC
  .imm  = 1

We use this new form for doing zero extension for which verifier will
guarantee SRC == DST.

Implications on JIT back-ends when doing code-gen for
BPF_ALU | BPF_MOV | BPF_X:
  1. No change if hardware already does zero extension unconditionally for
     sub-register write.
  2. Otherwise, when seeing imm == 1, just generate insns to clear high
     32-bit. No need to generate insns for the move because when imm == 1,
     dst_reg is the same as src_reg at the moment.

Interpreter doesn't need change as well. It is doing unconditionally zero
extension for mov32 already.

One helper macro BPF_ZEXT_REG is added to help creating zero extension
insn using this new mov32 variant.

One helper function insn_is_zext is added for checking one insn is an
zero extension on dst. This will be widely used by a few JIT back-ends in
later patches in this set.
