Yes, would be great to hear if there is a preference here.

Small correction, proposed sk_lookup program doesn't have access to
__sk_buff, so perhaps that case matters less.

bpf_sk_lookup->dst_port, the packet destination port, is in host byte
order so that it can be compared against bpf_sock->src_port, socket
local port, without conversion.

But I also see how it can be a surprise for a BPF user that one field has
a different byte order.
