Subject: [PATCH v6 bpf-next 0/4] bpftool: introduce prog profile

This set introduces bpftool prog profile command, which uses hardware
counters to profile BPF programs.

This command attaches fentry/fexit programs to a target program. These two
programs read hardware counters before and after the target program and
calculate the difference.

Changes v5 => v6:
1. Use new header bpf_tracing.h (Yonghong).

Changes v4 => v5:
1. Adjust perf_event_attr for the events (Jiri).

Changes v3 => v4:
1. Simplify err handling in profile_open_perf_events() (Quentin);
2. Remove redundant p_err() (Quentin);
3. Replace tab with space in bash-completion; (Quentin);
4. Fix typo _bpftool_get_map_names => _bpftool_get_prog_names (Quentin).

Changes v2 => v3:
1. Change order of arguments (Quentin), as:
     bpftool prog profile PROG [duration DURATION] METRICs
2. Add bash-completion for bpftool prog profile (Quentin);
3. Fix build of selftests (Yonghong);
4. Better handling of bpf_map_lookup_elem() returns (Yonghong);
5. Improve clean up logic of do_profile() (Yonghong);
6. Other smaller fixes/cleanups.

Changes RFC => v2:
1. Use new bpf_program__set_attach_target() API;
2. Update output format to be perf-stat like (Alexei);
3. Incorporate skeleton generation into Makefile;
4. Make DURATION optional and Allow Ctrl-C (Alexei);
5. Add calcated values "insn per cycle" and "LLC misses per million isns".
