The new bisect seems to have also led me to a strange commit. This time
I tried to be careful and tested most on two reboots before classifying
as good.

However, f4e3ec0d573e was suspicious - it failed to autoload e1000 but
had no other errors. On both boots with this kernel, modprobe e1000 and
ifup -a made the system work so I assumed it was good, while it might
not have been. Will try bisecting with f4e3ec0d573e marked bad.

nfp: bpf: perf event output helpers support

Add support for the perf_event_output family of helpers.

The implementation on the NFP will not match the host code exactly.
The state of the host map and rings is unknown to the device, hence
device can't return errors when rings are not installed. The device
simply packs the data into a firmware notification message and sends
it over to the host, returning success to the program.

There is no notion of a host CPU on the device when packets are being
processed. Device will only offload programs which set BPF_F_CURRENT_CPU.
Still, if map index doesn't match CPU no error will be returned (see

Dropped/lost firmware notification messages will not cause "lost
events" event on the perf ring, they are only visible via device
error counters.

Firmware notification messages may also get reordered in respect
to the packets which caused their generation.
