It feels there will be a bunch of such boiler plate code
in different .c files in many places in the kernel
if we go with this approach.

Maybe we should do one call:
register_btf_kfunc_id_set(BPF_PROG_TYPE_TRACING
from kernel/bpf/helper.c
to register all tracing kfuncs ?

And gate
BTF_ID_FLAGS(func, crash_kexec, KF_DESTRUCTIVE)
with #ifdef CONFIG_KEXEC_CORE.

We have such a pattern in verifier.c already.
