Subject: [PATCH bpf-next v3 0/2] bpftool/libbpf: Add probe for large INSN limit

This series implements a new BPF feature probe which checks for the
commit c04c0d2b968a ("bpf: increase complexity limit and maximum program
size"), which increases the maximum program size to 1M. It's based on
the similar check in Cilium, although Cilium is already aiming to use
bpftool checks and eventually drop all its custom checks.

Examples of outputs:

# bpftool feature probe
Scanning miscellaneous eBPF features...
Large complexity limit and maximum program size (1M) is available

# bpftool feature probe macros
/*** eBPF misc features ***/

# bpftool feature probe -j | jq '.["misc"]'
  "have_large_insn_limit": true

v1 -> v2:
- Test for 'BPF_MAXINSNS + 1' number of total insns.
- Remove info about current 1M limit from probe's description.

v2 -> v3:
- Remove the "complexity" word from probe's description.
