We'd need to skip the case of bpf_map__is_internal(map) since they are always
recreated for the given object.

Should we rather have a new map definition attribute that tells to reuse
the map if it's pinned in bpf fs, and if not, we create it and later on
pin it? This is what iproute2 is doing and which we're making use of heavily.
In bpf_object__reuse_maps() bailing out if bpf_obj_get() fails is perhaps
too limiting for a generic API as new version of an object file may contain
new maps which are not yet present in bpf fs at that point.
