Regarding this failure of btf_dump_data, the cause seems that:

I added a new struct in 'union bpf_iter_link_info' in this patch
series, which expanded bpf_iter_link_info's size from 32bit to 64bit.
However, the test still used the old struct to initialize, which makes
a temporary stack variable (of type bpf_iter_link_info) partially
initialized. If I initialize the type by the larger new struct only,
btf_dump_data will output the correct content and the said test will
pass.

Yosry, we need to fold the said solution in the patch which introduced
changes to bpf_iter_link_info, so that it won't break the test.

I haven't dug into btf_dump_data() on why partially initialized union
fails. I need to look at the get_cgroup_vmscan_delay selftest in this
patch now.
