The last few month BPF community has been discussing an approach to call
chaining, since exiting bpt_tail_call() mechanism used in production XDP
programs has plenty of downsides. The outcome of these discussion was a
conclusion to implement dynamic re-linking of BPF programs. Where rootlet XDP
program attached to a netdevice can programmatically define a policy of
execution of other XDP programs. Such rootlet would be compiled as normal XDP
program and provide a number of placeholder global functions which later can be
replaced with future XDP programs. BPF trampoline, function by function
verification were building blocks towards that goal. The patch 1 is a final
building block. It introduces dynamic program extensions. A number of
improvements like more flexible function by function verification and better
libbpf api will be implemented in future patches.
