Thanks for reviewing.

When I read the doc Documentation/networking/filter.txt and the
section "JIT compiler" it suggests as below. So I tried to set
'bpf_jit_enable = 2' to dump JIT code, but it failed.

If we have concern for security issue, should we remove support for
'bpf_jit_enable = 2' and modify the doc to reflect this change?

For JIT developers, doing audits etc, each compile run can output the generated
opcode image into the kernel log via:

echo 2 > /proc/sys/net/core/bpf_jit_enable

Example output from dmesg:
