I think it's concealing the problem instead of fixing it.
bpf is difficult to use for many reasons. Let's not make it harder.
The users will have a very hard time debugging why vfs_getattr bpf probe
is not called in all cases.
Let's replace:
vfs_truncate -> security_path_truncate
vfs_fallocate -> security_file_permission
vfs_getattr -> security_inode_getattr

For dentry_open also add security_file_open.
dentry_open and filp_close are in its own files,
so unlikely to be inlined.
Ideally resolve_btfids would parse dwarf info and check
whether any of the funcs in allowlist were inlined.
That would be more reliable, but not pretty to drag libdw
dependency into resolve_btfids.
