but nesting is what bpf_raw_tp_nest_level suppose to solve, no?
I just realized that we already have three *_nest_level counters
in that file. Not sure why one is not enough.
There was an issue in the past when tracepoint, kprobe and skb
collided and we had nasty memory corruption, but that was before
_nest_level was introduced. Not sure how we got to three independent
counters.
