Please don't change the indentation style (other lines have a tab).

Same note on indentation.

Could you please also explain in a few words what the "Map element bpf
iterator" is? Reusing part of your cover letter (see below) could do,
it's just so that users not familiar with the concept can get an idea of
what it does.

---
User can have a bpf program in kernel to run with each map element,
do checking, filtering, aggregation, etc. without copying data
to user space.

You probably want to add HELP_SPEC_MAP (as in map.c) to tell the user
what MAP should be.

Could you please also update the bash completion?

Thanks,
Quentin
