That is excellent news! I'm eager to hear from you if this perf+BPF
integration experiment works for arm64.

I'm now trying to get past the verifier when checking if more than one
syscall arg is a filename, i.e. things like the rename* family, that
take two filenames.

An exercise in loop unrolling, providing the right hints to the
verifier, making sure clang don't trash those via explicit barriers, and
a lot of patience, limitless fun! ;-)
