Huh, I thought fmod_ret was supposed to be for kernel functions only?
However, I can't really point to anywhere in the code that ensures this,
other than check_attach_modify_return(), but I think that will allow a
bpf function as long as its name starts with "security_" ?

Is there actually any use case for modify_return being attached to a BPF
function (you could just use freplace instead, couldn't you?). Or should
we just disallow that entirely (if I'm not missing somewhere it's
already blocked)?
