Subject: [bpf-next PATCH v2 00/12] bpf: selftests, test_sockmap improvements

Note: requires fixes listed below to be merged into bpf-next before

Update test_sockmap to add ktls tests and in the process make output
easier to understand and reduce overall runtime significantly. Before
this series test_sockmap did a poor job of tracking sent bytes causing
the recv thread to wait for a timeout even though all expected bytes
had been received. Doing this many times causes significant delays.
Further, we did many redundant tests because the send/recv test we used
was not specific to the parameters we were testing. For example testing
a failure case that always fails many times with different send sizes
is mostly useless. If the test condition catches 10B in the kernel code
testing 100B, 1kB, 4kB, and so on is just noise.

The main motivation for this is to add ktls tests, the last patch. Until
now I have been running these locally but we haven't had them checked in
to selftests. And finally I'm hoping to get these pushed into the libbpf
test infrastructure so we can get more testing. For that to work we need
ability to white and blacklist tests based on kernel features so we add
that here as well.

The new output looks like this broken into test groups with subtest

 $ time sudo ./test_sockmap
 # 1/ 6  sockmap:txmsg test passthrough:OK
 # 2/ 6  sockmap:txmsg test redirect:OK
 #22/ 1 sockhash:txmsg test push/pop data:OK
 Pass: 22 Fail: 0

 real    0m9.790s
 user    0m0.093s
 sys     0m7.318s

The old output printed individual subtest and was rather noisy

 $ time sudo ./test_sockmap
 [TEST 0]: (1, 1, 1, sendmsg, pass,): PASS
 [TEST 823]: (16, 1, 100, sendpage, ... ,pop (1599,1609),): PASS
 Summary: 824 PASSED 0 FAILED

 real    0m56.761s
 user    0m0.455s
 sys     0m31.757s

So we are able to reduce time from ~56s to ~10s. To recover older more
verbose output simply run with --verbose option. To whitelist and
blacklist tests use the new --whitelist and --blacklist flags added. For
example to run cork sockhash tests but only ones that don't have a receive
hang (used to test negative cases) we could do,

 $ ./test_sockmap --whitelist="cork" --blacklist="sockmap,hang"

Requires these two fixes from net tree,

v1->v2: Addressed Jakub's comments, exit to _exit and strerror typo.
        Added Jakubs Reviewed-by tag, Thanks!
