Update the bpf_object_open_attr structure and corresponding code so that the
bpf_object__open_xattr function could be used to open objects from buffers as
well as from files.  The reason for this change is that the existing
bpf_object__open_buffer function doesn't provide a way to specify neither the
needs_kver nor flags parameters to the internal call to __bpf_object__open
which makes it inconvenient for loading BPF objects which doesn't require a
kernel version.

Two new fields, obj_buf and obj_buf_sz, were added to the structure, and the
file field was union'ed with obj_name so that one can open an object like this:

    struct bpf_object_open_attr attr = {
        .obj_name   = name,
        .obj_buf    = obj_buf,
        .obj_buf_sz = obj_buf_sz,
        .prog_type  = BPF_PROG_TYPE_UNSPEC,
    };
    return bpf_object__open_xattr(&attr);

while still being able to use the file semantics:

    struct bpf_object_open_attr attr = {
        .file       = path,
        .prog_type  = BPF_PROG_TYPE_UNSPEC,
    };
    return bpf_object__open_xattr(&attr);

Another thing to note is that since the commit c034a177d3c8 ("bpf: bpftool, add
flag to allow non-compat map definitions") which introduced a MAPS_RELAX_COMPAT
flag to load objects with non-compat map definitions, bpf_object__open_buffer
was called with this flag enabled (it was passed as the boolean true value in
flags argument to __bpf_object__open).  The default behaviour for all open
functions is to clear this flag and this patch changes bpf_object__open_buffer
to clears this flag.  It can be enabled, if needed, by opening an object from
buffer using __bpf_object__open_xattr.
