still looks good, but I realized show_fdinfo and fill_link_info is
missing, see request for a follow-up below :)

Link infra supports .show_fdinfo and .fill_link_info methods, there is
no need to block on this, but it would be great to implement them from
BPF_LINK_TYPE_ITER as well in the same release as a follow-up. Thanks!
