I think here rep stos is copying 8 bytes at a time (%rax operand, %ecx
initalized with '6').

I think that you can avoid the costly instruction explicitly
initializing each field individually:

	struct bpf_sk_lookup_kern ctx;

	ctx.family = AF_INET;
	ctx.protocol = protocol;
	// ...

note, you likely want to explicitly zero the v6 addresses, too.

Cheers,
