Is this patch to be merged into the set in [0] for passing NULL ex_map as discussed?
Seems you sent out two incomplete sets?

I would probably have the semantics a bit different in the sense that I would
update meta->map_ptr to the last ARG_CONST_MAP_PTR, meaning:

     meta->map_ptr = register_is_null(reg) ? NULL : reg->map_ptr;

In combination with the set, this also needs test_verifier selftests in order to
exercise BPF insn snippets for the good & [expected] bad case.
