Hm I don't think so, there is no "VALUE" passed on the command line in
that case.

But then I should probably have removed mark-up on "value" for "bpftool
map pop|dequeue", instead of changing it, as those commands do not use
any value on the command line either. Thanks for the review, I'll send a
v2 with that change.
