* Libbpf allows callers to adjust BPF programs before being loaded
* into kernel. One program in an object file can be transform into
* multiple variants to be attached to different code.
* bpf_program_prep_t, bpf_program__set_prep and bpf_program__nth_fd
* are APIs for this propose.
* - bpf_program_prep_t:
* It defines 'preprocessor', which is a caller defined function
* passed to libbpf through bpf_program__set_prep(), and will be
* called before program is loaded. The processor should adjust
* the program one time for each instances according to the number
* passed to it.
* - bpf_program__set_prep:
* Attachs a preprocessor to a BPF program. The number of instances
* whould be created is also passed through this function.
* - bpf_program__nth_fd:
* After the program is loaded, get resuling fds from bpf program for
* each instances.
* If bpf_program__set_prep() is not used, the program whould be loaded
* without adjustment during bpf_object__load(). The program has only
* one instance. In this case bpf_program__fd(prog) is equal to
* bpf_program__nth_fd(prog, 0).
