Some BPF sysctl knobs affect the loading of BPF programs, and during
system boot/init stages these sysctls are not yet configured. A
concrete example is systemd, that has implemented loading of BPF
programs.

Thus, to allow controlling these setting at early boot, this patch set
adds the ability to change the default setting of these sysctl knobs
as well as option to override them via a boot-time kernel parameter
(in order to avoid rebuilding kernel each time a need of changing these
defaults arises).

The sysctl knobs in question are kernel.unprivileged_bpf_disable,
net.core.bpf_jit_harden, and net.core.bpf_jit_kallsyms.
