Subject: [bpf-next v7 2/3] bpftool: Update doc (add autoattach to prog load)

Add autoattach optional to prog load|loadall for supporting
one-step load-attach-pin_link.

 		  Optional **pinmaps** argument can be provided to pin all
 		  maps under *MAP_DIR* directory.
+		  If **autoattach** is specified program will be attached
+		  before pin. In that case, only the link (representing the
+		  program attached to its hook) is pinned, not the program as
+		  such, so the path won't show in "**bpftool prog show -f**",
+		  only show in "**bpftool link show -f**". Also, this only works
+		  when bpftool (libbpf) is able to infer all necessary information
+		  from the objectfile, in particular, it's not supported for all
+		  program types. If the *OBJ* contains multiple programs and
+		  *loadall* is used, if the program A in these programs does not
+		  support auto-attachi, will skip program A(do no operation on
+		  program A), print a info message such as "Program A does not
+		  support autoattach", and continue to autoattach the next program.
 		  Note: *PATH* must be located in *bpffs* mount. It must not
 		  contain a dot character ('.'), which is reserved for future
 		  extensions of *bpffs*.
