Subject: [PATCH bpf-next 0/2] bpf: change uapi for bpf iterator map elements

Andrii raised a concern that current uapi for bpf iterator map
element is a little restrictive and not suitable for future potential
complex customization. This is a valid suggestion, considering people
may indeed add more complex custimization to the iterator, e.g.,
cgroup_id + user_id, etc. for task or task_file. Another example might
be map_id plus additional control so that the bpf iterator may bail
out a bucket earlier if a bucket has too many elements which may hold
lock too long and impact other parts of systems.

Patch #1 modified uapi with kernel changes. Patch #2
adjusted libbpf api accordingly.

Yonghong Song (2):
  bpf: change uapi for bpf iterator map elements
  libbpf: support new uapi for map element bpf iterator
