Sorry for the late reply and thanks for reporting! More below:

Unless Alexei has some better idea, I think if the bpf_create_map() error in
the stress test is about ENOMEM, then we shouldn't fail hard via exit(), for
all other cases we should however. So probably makes sense to just check for
errno == ENOMEM in case of fd < 0 in test_hashmap_sizes() and then continue
to keep trying under stress. Feel free to send a patch, Li.

Thanks again,
Daniel
