Just to be clear: I have made sure that developers of the patches
maintain authorship (when applied to git via the From: line) and I've
Cc'ed the developers directly.  I didn't Cc you directly as I knew you
would be included via XDP-hints list, and I didn't directly use one of
your patches.

After discussions with Larysa on pre-patchset, I was convinced of the
idea of a full 64-bit BTF ID.  Thus, I took those patches and carried
them in my patchset, instead of reimplementing the same myself.
Precisely out of respect for Larysa's work as I wanted to give her
credit for coding this.

I'm very interested in collaborating.  That is why I have picked up
patches from your patchset and are carrying them forward.  I could just
as easily reimplemented them myself.
