[PATCH bpf-next v4 0/2] bpf: allow map helpers access to map values directly

Paul Chaignon <paul.chaignon@...>
 

Currently, helpers that expect ARG_PTR_TO_MAP_KEY and ARG_PTR_TO_MAP_VALUE
can only access stack and packet memory. This patchset allows these
helpers to directly access map values by passing registers of type
PTR_TO_MAP_VALUE.

The first patch changes the verifier; the second adds new test cases.

Previous versions of this patchset were sent on the iovisor-dev mailing
list only.

Changelogs:
Changes in v4:
- Rebase.
Changes in v3:
- Bug fixes.
- Negative test cases.
Changes in v2:
- Additional test cases for adjusted maps.
