Subject: [PATCH] bpf: unify function pointer type of dispatcher

The __bpf_prog_run() function takes a bpf_dispatcher_fn as its last
argument, which are usually generated by use of the
DEFINE_BPF_DISPATCHER() macro. The last argument of a bpf_dispatcher_fn
is an open coded function pointer. The DEFINE_BPF_DISPATCHER() macro, on the
other hand, has as its last argument a bpf_func_t, rather than an open
coded function pointer. Unify these two signatures by using bpf_func_t
in both places, since it's the same as the open coded function pointer.
