Thanks for the report. To be sure the issue doesn't fall through the
cracks unnoticed, I'm adding it to regzbot, the Linux kernel regression
tracking bot:

#regzbot ^introduced 41a5db8d8161
#regzbot title bpf: recent changes in BPF increased per-CPU memory
consumption a lot.
#regzbot monitor:
https://lore.kernel.org/all/20231110172050.2235758-1-yonghong.song@linux.dev/
#regzbot fix: bpf: Do not allocate percpu memory at init stage
#regzbot ignore-activity

Ciao, Thorsten (wearing his 'the Linux kernel's regression tracker' hat)
