SubjectRe: [PATCH] bpf: do not start from first bucket if elem is not found on a htab

sdf@ just mentioned this internally as well... I think we simply will
need to add a flags field
with at least two options/flags:
- return error if key not found
- resume from bucket instead of beginning if key not found
and while we're at it:
- return concatenated key+value instead of just key to save an
immediate lookup on the returned key
