Can you describe what "stable" and "unstable" mean here? I'm new to BPF 
and I'm worried if it may mean the interface stability.

Let me describe the context. QEMU bundles an eBPF program that is used 
for the "eBPF steering program" feature of tun. Now I'm proposing to 
extend the feature to allow to return some values to the userspace and 
vhost_net. As such, the extension needs to be done in a way that ensures 
interface stability.
