I think the verifier should be smarter than this.
It's too specific and inflexible. All ctx fields of bpf_iter execpt first
will be such ? let's figure out a different way to tell verifier about this.
How about using typedef with specific suffix? Like:
typedef struct bpf_map *bpf_map_or_null;
 struct bpf_iter__bpf_map {
   struct bpf_iter_meta *meta;
   bpf_map_or_null map;
 };
or use a union with specific second member? Like:
 struct bpf_iter__bpf_map {
   struct bpf_iter_meta *meta;
   union {
     struct bpf_map *map;
     long null;
   };
 };
