Subject: [PATCH bpf-next v5 0/8] New nf_conntrack kfuncs for insertion, changing timeout, status

Introduce the following new kfuncs:
 - bpf_{xdp,skb}_ct_alloc
 - bpf_ct_insert_entry
 - bpf_ct_{set,change}_timeout
 - bpf_ct_{set,change}_status

The setting of timeout and status on allocated or inserted/looked up CT
is same as the ctnetlink interface, hence code is refactored and shared
with the kfuncs. It is ensured allocated CT cannot be passed to kfuncs
that expected inserted CT, and vice versa. Please see individual patches
for details.

v4 -> v5:

 * Drop read-only PTR_TO_BTF_ID approach, use struct nf_conn___init (Alexei)
 * Drop acquire release pair code that is no longer required (Alexei)
 * Disable writes into nf_conn, use dedicated helpers (Florian, Alexei)
 * Refactor and share ctnetlink code for setting timeout and status
 * Do strict type matching on finding __ref suffix on argument to
   prevent passing nf_conn___init as nf_conn (offset = 0, match on walk)
 * Remove bpf_ct_opts parameter from bpf_ct_insert_entry
 * Update selftests for new additions, add more negative tests

v3 -> v4:

 * split bpf_xdp_ct_add in bpf_xdp_ct_alloc/bpf_skb_ct_alloc and
 * add verifier code to properly populate/configure ct entry
 * improve selftests

v2 -> v3:

 * add bpf_xdp_ct_add and bpf_ct_refresh_timeout kfunc helpers
 * remove conntrack dependency from selftests
 * add support for forcing kfunc args to be referenced and related selftests

v1 -> v2:

 * add bpf_ct_refresh_timeout kfunc selftest
