Does it have to call libbpf_prog_type_by_name() if everything
has already been decided by the earlier
bpf_object__collect_struct_ops_map_reloc()?

Yes, for consistency is fine as I mentioned in the earlier reply,
as long as it is understood the usefulness of it.

How?

Correct that the map api is reused as is in SEC(".struct_ops").

For prog, AFAICT, it is not possible to create struct_ops
prog from raw and use it in struct_ops map unless more LIBBPF_API
is added.  Lets put aside the need to find the btf_vmlinux
and its btf-types...etc.  At least, there is no LIBBPF_API to
set prog->attach_btf_id.  Considering the amount of preparation
is needed to create a struct_ops map from raw,  I would like
to see a real use case first before even considering what else
is needed and add another LIBBPF_API that may not be used.
