Subject: [PATCH bpf-next v3 0/4] bpf: verifier: use target program's type for access verifications

This patch series adds changes in verifier to make decisions such as granting
of read / write access or enforcement of return code status based on
the program type of the target program while using dynamic program
extension (of type BPF_PROG_TYPE_EXT).

The BPF_PROG_TYPE_EXT type can be used to extend types such as XDP, SKB
and others. Since the BPF_PROG_TYPE_EXT program type on itself is just a
placeholder for those, we need this extended check for those extended
programs to actually work with proper access, while using this option.

Patch #1 includes changes in the verifier.
Patch #2 adds selftests to verify write access on a packet for a valid 
extension program type
Patch #3 adds selftests to verify proper check for the return code
Patch #4 adds selftests to ensure access permissions and restrictions 
for some map types such sockmap.

  v2 -> v3:
    * more comprehensive resolution of the program type in the verifier
      based on the target program (and not just for the packet access)
    * selftests for checking return code and map access
    * Also moved this patch to 'bpf-next' from 'bpf' tree
  v1 -> v2:
    * extraction of the logic to resolve prog type into a separate method
    * selftests to check for packet access for a valid freplace prog

Udip Pant (4):
  bpf: verifier: use target program's type for access verifications
  selftests/bpf: add test for freplace program with write access
  selftests/bpf: test for checking return code for the extended prog
  selftests/bpf: test for map update access from within EXT programs
