got it.

ctx_in could have multiple args.
I was more thinking on the muliple arg test also. Potentially some of them
are just integers, e.g. 

int test2(struct bpf_dummy_ops_state *state, char a, short b, int c, long d)


All args can be put in ctx_in like bpf_prog_test_run_raw_tp().
Take a look at raw_tp_test_run.c.  Although it is not strictly
necessary to use u64 for all args in the struct_ops test
because the struct_ops test still wants to prepare the
trampoline to catch the return value issue...etc,  passing
an array of u64 args in ctx_in should make it easier to program
the userspace and optimizing the ctx_in based on the sizeof each
arg seems not gaining much as a test also.

For "struct bpf_dummy_ops_state *state", instead of making an
exception to pass ptr arg in data_in,  the user ptr can be directly
passed as a u64 stored in ctx_in also, then there is no need to use
data_in or data_size_in.  If it is needed, the userspace's
sizeof(struct bpf_dummy_ops_state) can be found from the
There is no need to use data_out/data_out_size also, just directly
copy it back to the same user ptr stored in ctx_in.
