It's far from obvious that this will never happen, because we do a
decently complicated BTF processing (we skip some types altogether
believing that they are not used, for example) and it will only get
more complicated with time. Just as there are "verifier bug" checks in
kernel, this prevents things from going wild if non-trivial bugs will
inevitably happen.
