Some BPF programs compiled on s390 fail to load, because s390
arch-specific linux headers contain float and double types.
    
Introduce support for such types by representing them using the new
BTF_KIND_FLOAT. This series deals with libbpf, bpftool, in-kernel BTF
parser as well as selftests and documentation.

There are also pahole and LLVM parts:

* https://github.com/iii-i/dwarves/commit/btf-kind-float-v2
* https://reviews.llvm.org/D83289

but they should go in after the libbpf part is integrated.

v0: https://lore.kernel.org/bpf/20210210030317.78820-1-iii@linux.ibm.com/
v0 -> v1: Per Andrii's suggestion, remove the unnecessary trailing u32.

v1: https://lore.kernel.org/bpf/20210216011216.3168-1-iii@linux.ibm.com/
v1 -> v2: John noticed that sanitization corrupts BTF, because new and
          old sizes don't match. Per Yonghong's suggestion, use a
          modifier type (which has the same size as the float type) as
          a replacement.
          Per Yonghong's suggestion, add size and alignment checks to
          the kernel BTF parser.

v2: https://lore.kernel.org/bpf/20210219022543.20893-1-iii@linux.ibm.com/
v2 -> v3: Based on Yonghong's suggestions: Use BTF_KIND_CONST instead of
          BTF_KIND_TYPEDEF and make sure that the C code generated from
          the sanitized BTF is well-formed; fix size calculation in
          tests and use NAME_TBD everywhere; limit allowed sizes to 2,
          4, 8, 12 and 16 (this should also fix m68k and nds32le
          builds).

v3: https://lore.kernel.org/bpf/20210220034959.27006-1-iii@linux.ibm.com/
v3 -> v4: More fixes for the Yonghong's findings: fix the outdated
          comment in bpf_object__sanitize_btf() and add the error
          handling there (I've decided to check uint_id and uchar_id
          too in order to simplify debugging); add bpftool output
          example; use div64_u64_rem() instead of % in order to fix the
          linker error.
          Also fix the "invalid BTF_INFO" test (new commit, #4).

Based on Alexei's feedback [1] I'm proceeding with the BTF_KIND_FLOAT
approach.
