Subject: [PATCH bpf-next 07/15] bpf: Call bpf_map_init_from_attr() immediately after map creation

In order to make all other map related memory allocations been allocated
after memcg is saved in the map, we should save the memcg immediately
after map creation. But the map is created in bpf_map_area_alloc(),
within which we can't get the related bpf_map (except with a pointer
casting which may be error prone), so we can do it in
bpf_map_init_from_attr(), which is used by all bpf maps.

bpf_map_init_from_attr() is executed immediately after
bpf_map_area_alloc() for almost all bpf maps except bpf_struct_ops,
devmap and hashmap, so this patch changes these three maps.

In the future we will change the return type of bpf_map_init_from_attr()
from void to int for error cases, so put it immediately after
bpf_map_area_alloc() will make it eary to handle the error case.
