For me, I use bpf_output_trace_data() to output information like PMU count

there is a special receiver in user space that only wants the data from
the bpf program that it loaded. It shouldn't conflict with any other

for other performance analysis. There is no way to share single
bpf:bpf_output_data event, since these user processes are completely
