I prefer bpf_program__set_attach_target() approach. Section name is a
program identifier and a *hint* for libbpf to determine program type,
attach type, and whatever else makes sense. But there still should be
an API to set all that manually at runtime, thus
bpf_program__set_attach_target(). Doing same by overriding section
name feels like a hack, plus it doesn't handle overriding
attach_program_fd at all.
