Maryam, you guessed correctly that dedicating all these options bits
for a single feature will not be ok :-). E.g., I want one bit for the
AF_XDP multi-buffer support and who knows what other uses there might
be for this options field in the future. Let us try to solve this in
some other way. Here are some suggestions, all with their pros and
cons.

* Put this feature flag at a known place in the metadata area, for
example just before the BTF ID. No need to fill this in if you are not
redirecting to AF_XDP, but at a redirect to AF_XDP, the XDP flags are
copied into this u32 in the metadata area so that user-space can
consume it. Will cost 4 bytes of the metadata area though.

* Instead encode this information into each metadata entry in the
metadata area, in some way so that a flags field is not needed (-1
signifies not valid, or whatever happens to make sense). This has the
drawback that the user might have to look at a large number of entries
just to find out there is nothing valid to read. To alleviate this, it
could be combined with the next suggestion.

* Dedicate one bit in the options field to indicate that there is at
least one valid metadata entry in the metadata area. This could be
combined with the two approaches above. However, depending on what
metadata you have enabled, this bit might be pointless. If some
metadata is always valid, then it serves no purpose. But it might if
all enabled metadata is rarely valid, e.g., if you get an Rx timestamp
on one packet out of one thousand.
