there is no [module] equivalent in bpf land.
The progs loaded by different users can be shared.
There is no strict tree hierarchy (like in modules)
where there is one root and a bunch of function underneath.
In bpf all these functions form a graph and can call each other.
Same with maps that are shared by different progs of different types.
Like networking prog and tracing prog can share common map.
