I'd rather document it in separate patch.
Just doing container_of here and there will lead to wrong assumption
that it can be in a different place, but it's much more involved.
Consider what happens with all map_alloc callbacks... how that pointer
is hard coded into bpf prog.. then passed back into helpers...
then the logic that can read inner fields of bpf_map from the prog...
