Automation might be hard, but maybe semi-automate: we have a cant_migrate()
assertion in __BPF_PROG_RUN() which asserts on cant_sleep() PREEMPT_RT kernels
at least. We originally just has the cant_sleep() there before 37e1d9202225
("bpf: Replace cant_sleep() with cant_migrate()"). So perhaps one way to catch
bugs for sleepable progs is to add a __might_sleep() into __bpf_prog_enter_sleepable()
in order to trigger the assertion generally for DEBUG_ATOMIC_SLEEP configured
kernels when we're in non-sleepable sections? Still not perfect since the code
needs to be exercised first but better than nothing at all.

Yep.

Thanks,
