This patch series adds various observability APIs to bpf_link:
  - each bpf_link now gets ID, similar to bpf_map and bpf_prog, by which
    user-space can iterate over all existing bpf_links and create limited FD
    from ID;
  - allows to get extra object information with bpf_link general and
    type-specific information;
  - makes LINK_UPDATE operation allowed only for writable bpf_links and allows
    to pin bpf_link as read-only file;
  - implements `bpf link show` command which lists all active bpf_links in the
    system;
  - implements `bpf link pin` allowing to pin bpf_link by ID or from other
    pinned path.

This RFC series is missing selftests and only limited amount of manual testing
was performed. But kernel implementation is hopefully in a good shape and
won't change much (unless some big issues are identified with the current
approach). It would be great to get feedback on approach and implementation,
before I invest more time in writing tests.

Andrii Nakryiko (8):
  bpf: refactor bpf_link update handling
  bpf: allow bpf_link pinning as read-only and enforce LINK_UPDATE
  bpf: allocate ID for bpf_link
  bpf: support GET_FD_BY_ID and GET_NEXT_ID for bpf_link
  bpf: add support for BPF_OBJ_GET_INFO_BY_FD for bpf_link
  libbpf: add low-level APIs for new bpf_link commands
  bpftool: expose attach_type-to-string array to non-cgroup code
  bpftool: add bpf_link show and pin support
