Subject[RFC PATCH 10/11] bpf: add bpf_buffer_reserve and bpf_buffer_commit
Add two helpers that are primarily used in combination with the
writable-buffer support. The bpf_buffer_reserve() helper sets aside
a chunk of buffer space that can be written to, and once all data
has been written, the bpf_buffer_commit() helper is used to make the
data in the ring buffer visible to userspace.
