Right, I see how silly is the generated instruction sequence. I guess
I've accepted how <prog_type>_convert_ctx_access functions emit loads
and didn't stop and question this part before.

I have a feeling that I'm not following what you have in mind.

True, target_size is only known after convert_ctx_access generated
instructions. At this point, if we want to optimize the narrow loads
that must return 0, we can pop however many instructions
convert_ctx_access appended to insn_buf and emit BPF_MOV32/64_IMM.

However, it sounds a bit more complex than what I hoped for initially,
so I'm starting to doubt the value. Considering that narrow loads at an
offset that matches or exceeds target field size must be a corner case,
if the current "broken" behavior went unnoticed so far.

I'll need to play with the code and see how it turns out. But for the
moment please consider acking/nacking this one, as a simple way to fix
the issue targeted at 'bpf' branch and stable kernels.

I agree with your sentiment. Sorry if I got too defensive there.
