Can it really return -1?

I see:

static inline u32 bpf_prog_run_clear_cb(const struct bpf_prog *prog,
                                        struct sk_buff *skb)
...

Having such fallback may bring extra troubles, it requires the eBPF
program know the existence of the behavior which is not a part of kernel
ABI actually. And then some eBPF program may start to rely on that which
is pretty dangerous. Note, one important consideration is to have
macvtap support where does not have any stuffs like automq.

Thanks
