[RFC PATCH 0/3] Implement bpf map queue

Mauricio Vasquez
 

Bpf queue map is a new kind of map that provides a LIFO/FIFO queue
implementation.

In some applications, like a SNAT, it is necessary to keep track of
a pool of free elemenets, network ports in this case, then a queue
can be used for that purpose.
