Subject[PATCH v3] Add BPF_SYNCHRONIZE_MAP_TO_MAP_REFERENCES bpf(2) command
From
BPF_SYNCHRONIZE_MAP_TO_MAP_REFERENCES waits for the release of all
references to maps active at the instant the
BPF_SYNCHRONIZE_MAP_TO_MAP_REFERENCES is
issued. BPF_SYNCHRONIZE_MAP_TO_MAP_REFERENCES waits only for the
expiration of map references obtained by BPF programs from other maps.

The purpose of this command is to provide a means for userspace to
replace a BPF map with another, newer version, then ensure that no
component is still using the "old" map before manipulating the "old"
map in some way.
