ah, good point. I'm not sure how to make it better. the
__bpf_dynptr_data_ptr() code is based on bpf_dynptr_slice() which has
bpf_dynptr_slice_rdwr() variant. I don't think it's good idea to add
local rdwr variant. I can either add 2 parameter to force checking if
dynptr isn't read-only, or I can convert bpf_dynptr_slice* functions to
be wrappers over __bpf_dynptr_slice and reuse it in this code.
