* [RFC PATCH 10/11] bpf: add bpf_buffer_reserve and bpf_buffer_commit helpers

From: Kris Van Hees @ 2019-05-20 23:54 UTC (permalink / raw)
  To: netdev, bpf, dtrace-devel, linux-kernel
  Cc: rostedt, mhiramat, acme, ast, daniel

Add two helpers that are primarily used in combination with the
writable-buffer support.  The bpf_buffer_reserve() helper sets aside
a chunk of buffer space that can be written to, and once all data
has been written, the bpf_buffer_commit() helper is used to make the
data in the ring buffer visible to userspace.
