That's what I did. V5 set contains all examples and verifier testsuite:
Dave asked to split it up into subsets, since it's too big too review
at once. which makes sense, so this V6 is only first part and
the plan was:
1st(this) set - introduces uapi/linux/bpf.h and BPF syscall for maps only
2nd set will extend BPF syscall with programs and verifier
3rd set will use eBPF in tracing, add samples and verifier tests
4th set will have llvm and C examples
Each set is around 6-8 patches instead of 29 in V5
