* Example howto transfer info from XDP to SKB, e.g. skb->mark
* -----------------------------------------------------------
* This uses the XDP data_meta infrastructure, and is a cooperation
* between two bpf-programs (1) XDP and (2) clsact at TC-ingress hook.
* Notice: This example does not use the BPF C-loader (bpf_load.c),
* but instead rely on the iproute2 TC tool for loading BPF-objects.

* This struct is stored in the XDP 'data_meta' area, which is located
* just in-front-of the raw packet payload data. The meaning is
* specific to these two BPF programs that use it as a communication
* channel. XDP adjust/increase the area via a bpf-helper, and TC use
* boundary checks to see if data have been provided.
* The struct must be 4 byte aligned, which here is enforced by the
* struct __attribute__((aligned(4))).

__u32 mark;

* ctx->data MUST happen _after_ helper bpf_xdp_adjust_meta(),
* as pkt-data pointers are invalidated. Helpers that require
