Well, I'm not going to insist, but BPF program is a C function,
compiled BPF .o file is BPF object, so I don't think there is going to
be too much confusion to have progs and hostprogs in Makefile. But I'm
fine with tprog.

Alright, let's not try to save 5 letters, it's quite confusing.

as mentioned above, we never build "BPF programs", they are always
part of BPF objects. But as I mentioned, I'm fine with sticking to
tprog.
