In the discussion about multi-attach for freplace we kinda concluded[0]
that this linked_prog pointer was going away after attach. I have this
basically working, but need to test a bit more before posting it (see
[1] for current status).

But with this I guess we'll need to either do something different? Maybe
go chase down the target via the bpf_link or something?
