sure, added 'bpf_' to the name.

sure, I should check that it is at least 4-bytes - the existing size of
the values. After that the struct can vary as user and kernel differ.
The key is that newer userspace can not send down a higher value size
than the kernel supports  and older userspace can send fewer bytes
(e.g., 4-byte ifindex only vs 8-byte ifindex + fd). I'll revert this to
v1 where I check for specific known value sizes.
