Please also document this flag in Documentation/bpf/kfuncs.rst.

And maybe instead of KF_DESTRUCTIVE, it might be more apt to call this
KF_CAP_SYS_BOOT. While it is true you had a destructive flag for
programs being loaded earlier, so there was a mapping between the two
UAPI and kfunc flags, what it has boiled down to is that this flag
just requires CAP_SYS_BOOT (in addition to other capabilities) during
load. So that name might express the intent a bit better. We might
soon have similar flags encoding requirements of other capabilities on
load.

The flag rename is just a suggestion, up to you.
