Subject: [PATCH bpf v3] bpf: fix "unresolved symbol" build error with resolve_btfids

Michal reported a build failure likes below:
   BTFIDS  vmlinux
   FAILED unresolved symbol tcp_timewait_sock
   make[1]: *** [/.../linux-5.9-rc7/Makefile:1176: vmlinux] Error 255

This error can be triggered when config has CONFIG_NET enabled
but CONFIG_INET disabled. In this case, there is no user of
structs inet_timewait_sock and tcp_timewait_sock and hence vmlinux BTF
types are not generated for these two structures.

To fix the problem, let us force BTF generation for these two
structures with BTF_TYPE_EMIT.

Fixes: fce557bcef11 ("bpf: Make btf_sock_ids global")

  v2 -> v3:
    . instead of avoiding generating BTF types which is more
      complex, just always generating these BTF types (under CONFIG_NET).
  v1 -> v2:
    . For unsupported socket times, using BTF_ID_UNUSED to
      keep the id as 0. (Martin)
