LGTM it took a bit of looking around to convince myself that
we have ret_type set to PTR_TO_SOCK_*_OR_NULL types in the sk lookup
helpers so that we force a null check before passing these into the
skc_to_* helpers here, but I didn't see any holes. Thanks.

I guess this case is harmless? If some other arg has a btf_id its setup
wrong, so nice to fail here I think.
