Subject: [PATCH bpf-next v2 0/2] Refactor perf_event sample user program with libbpf bpf_link

Currently, some samples are using ioctl for enabling perf_event and
attaching BPF programs to this event. However, the bpf_program__attach
of libbpf(using bpf_link) is much more intuitive than the previous
method using ioctl.

bpf_program__attach_perf_event manages the enable of perf_event and
attach of BPF programs to it, so there's no neeed to do this
directly with ioctl.

In addition, bpf_link provides consistency in the use of API because it
allows disable (detach, destroy) for multiple events to be treated as
one bpf_link__destroy.

To refactor samples with using this libbpf API, the bpf_load in the
samples were removed and migrated to libbbpf. Because read_trace_pipe
is used in bpf_load, multiple samples cannot be migrated to libbpf,
this function was moved to trace_helpers.

Changes in v2:
 - check memory allocation is successful
 - clean up allocated memory on error

Daniel T. Lee (2):
  samples: bpf: move read_trace_pipe to trace_helpers
  samples: bpf: refactor perf_event user program with libbpf bpf_link
