I'm 100% with Daniel here. If we are consolidating such things, I'd
rather have them in one place where differences between maps are
defined, which is ops. Despite an "ops" name, this seems like a
perfect place for specifying all those per-map-type properties and
behaviors. Adding flags into bpf_types.h just splits everything into
two places: bpf_types.h specifies some differences, while ops specify
all the other ones.

Figuring out map-in-map support is just one of many questions one
might ask about differences between map types, I don't think that
justifies adding them to bpf_types.h. Grepping for struct bpf_map_ops
with search context (i.e., -A15 or something like that) should be
enough to get a quick glance at all possible maps and what they
define/override.

It also feels like adding this as bool field for each aspect instead
of a collection of bits is cleaner and a bit more scalable. If we need
to add another property with some parameter/constant, or just enum,
defining one of few possible behaviors, it would be easier to just add
another field, instead of trying to cram that into u32. It also solves
your problem of "at the glance" view of map-in-map support features.
Just name that field unique enough to grep by it :)
