Yeah, no problem. Though not going to add this arch-specific variable
in the posted patches, I tried array-typed ksyms locally in my test
environment. It worked fine, except that the array size is not
checked. For instance, if there is a percpu array in kernel as

DEFINE_PER_CPU(u32[64], foo);

we can declare a ksym of different size and it passes libbpf checks
and kernel verification.

extern u32 foo[128] __ksyms;

It seems that bpf_core_types_are_compat() doesn't check nr_elem. But
it seems the kernel verifier does check out-of-bounds accesses, so
this may not be a real problem. Just want to list what I saw.
