Subject: [PATCH bpf-next] libbpf: export bpf_object__reuse_map() to libbpf api

Besides bpf_map__reuse_fd(), which could let us reuse existing map fd.
bpf_object__reuse_map() could let us reuse existing pinned maps, which
is helpful.

This functions could also be used when we add iproute2 libbpf support,
so we don't need to re-use or re-implement new functions like
bpf_obj_get()/bpf_map_selfcheck_pinned() in iproute2.
