Hm, I'm not sure that using macroses here makes the code much easier to read.
Maybe we can use just strcmp() instead?
As we compare with hardcoded strings, there is no real difference.
Something like this:

if (!strcmp("socket", prog->section_name))
return BPF_PROG_TYPE_SOCKET_FILTER;
if (!strcmp("kprobe/", prog->section_name))
return BPF_PROG_TYPE_KPROBE;
if (!strcmp("kretprobe/", prog->section_name))
return BPF_PROG_TYPE_KPROBE;
if (!strcmp("tracepoint/", prog->section_name))
return BPF_PROG_TYPE_TRACEPOINT;
if (!strcmp("xdp", prog->section_name))
return BPF_PROG_TYPE_XDP;
if (!strcmp("perf_event", prog->section_name))
return BPF_PROG_TYPE_PERF_EVENT;
if (!strcmp("cgroup/skb", prog->section_name))
return BPF_PROG_TYPE_CGROUP_SKB;
if (!strcmp("cgroup/sock", prog->section_name))
return BPF_PROG_TYPE_CGROUP_SOCK;
if (!strcmp("cgroup/dev", prog->section_name))
return BPF_PROG_TYPE_CGROUP_DEVICE;
if (!strcmp("sockops", prog->section_name))
return BPF_PROG_TYPE_SOCK_OPS;
if (!strcmp("sk_skb", prog->section_name))
return BPF_PROG_TYPE_SK_SKB;

Thanks!
