Subject: [RFCv2 0/9] bpf: Add d_path helper

adding d_path helper to return full path for 'path' object.

I originally added and used 'file_path' helper, which did the same,
but used 'struct file' object. Then realized that file_path is just
a wrapper for d_path, so we'd cover more calling sites if we add
d_path helper and allowed resolving BTF object within another object,
so we could call d_path also with file pointer, like:

  bpf_d_path(&file->f_path, buf, size);

This feature is mainly to be able to add dpath (filepath originally)
function to bpftrace, which seems to work nicely now, like:

  # bpftrace -e 'kfunc:vfs_open { printf("%s\n", dpath(args->path)); }'

RFC v2 changes:

  - added whitelist support, d_path helper is allowed only for
    list of functions, the whitelist checking works as follows:

      - helper's whitelist is defined as list of functions in file:
      - at vmlinux linking time, the bpfwl tool reads the whitelist
        and translates functions into BTF IDs, which are then compiled
        as following data section into vmlinux object:


        Each BTF_whitelist_<helperX> data is a sorted array of BTF ids.
      - new 'allowed' function is added to 'struct bpf_func_proto',
        which is used by verifier code to check (if defined) on whether
        the helper is called from allowed function (from whitelist).

    Currently it's needed and implemented only for d_path helper,
    but it's easy to add support for another helper.

  - I don't change the btf_id value in check_func_arg as suggested by Alexei
  - added new test_verifier test
