libbpf: Sanitise internal map names so they are not rejected by the kernel
The kernel only accepts map names with alphanumeric characters, underscores and periods in their name. However, the auto-generated internal map names used by libbpf takes their prefix from the user-supplied BPF object name, which has no such restriction. This can lead to "Invalid argument" errors when trying to load a BPF program using global variables. Fix this by sanitising the map names, replacing any non-allowed characters with underscores.
