Subject: [PATCH bpf-next 2/3] libbpf: add non-CO-RE variants of BPF_CORE_READ() macro family

BPF_CORE_READ(), in addition to handling CO-RE relocations, also allows much
nicer way to read data structures with nested pointers. Instead of writing
a sequence of bpf_probe_read() calls to follow links, one can just write
BPF_CORE_READ(a, b, c, d) to effectively do a->b->c->d read. This is a welcome
ability when porting BCC code, which (in most cases) allows exactly the
intuitive a->b->c->d variant.

This patch adds non-CO-RE variants of BPF_CORE_READ() family of macros for
cases where CO-RE is not supported (e.g., old kernels). In such cases, the
property of shortening a sequence of bpf_probe_read()s to a simple
BPF_PROBE_READ(a, b, c, d) invocation is still desirable, especially when
porting BCC code to libbpf. Yet, no CO-RE relocation is going to be emitted.
