parentselftests/bpf: Add byte swapping selftest (diff)
bpf: Remove redundant synchronize_rcu.
bpf_free_used_maps() or close(map_fd) will trigger map_free callback. bpf_free_used_maps() is called after bpf prog is no longer executing: bpf_prog_put->call_rcu->bpf_prog_free->bpf_free_used_maps. Hence there is no need to call synchronize_rcu() to protect map elements. Note that hash_of_maps and array_of_maps update/delete inner maps via sys_bpf() that calls maybe_wait_bpf_programs() and synchronize_rcu().
