Well, now it's backwards-incompatible: older program passes smaller
(but previously perfectly valid) sizeof(struct xdp_link_info) to newer
version of libbpf. This has to go both ways: smaller struct should be
supported as long as program doesn't request (using flags) something,
that can't be put into allowed space.

I know it's PITA to support this, but that's what we have to do for
forward/backward compatibility.

nit: memset above should start at info + min(info_size, sizeof(xdp_id.info))
