Subject[bpf-next 0/2] cleanup SOCK_DEBUG() and introduce BPF_SOCK_OPS_STATS_CB
SOCK_DEBUG is a very ancient debugging interface, and it's not very useful
for debugging.
This pacthset cleanups SOCK_DEBUG() and replace it with a new methord
based on BPF.

I cleanup SOCK_DEBUG() only for TCP, and other protocols are kept as is.

After this patchset, the SO_DEBUG interface will not take any effect for
TCP, but I still keep it in sock_{s,g}etsockopt() for TCP to avoid breaking

In the future we may extend tcp_stats() as bellow or something else to
cover all the LINUX_MIB_* and TCP_MIB_* proposaled[0] in the netconf2018.

tcp_stats(struct sock *sk, int mib_idx)
tcp_stats(struct sock *sk, int mib_idx, int packets)
The argument packets can be 1 to indicates this is a event only;
and skb_shinfo(skb)->gso_segs to indicates the number of packets
are also concerned.

tcp: replace SOCK_DEBUG() with tcp_stats()
bpf: add BPF_SOCK_OPS_STATS_CB for tcp_stats()
