Subject[PATCH v4 1/2] kheaders: Move from proc to sysfs
Date
The kheaders archive consisting of the kernel headers used for compiling
bpf programs is in /proc. However there is concern that moving it here
will make it permanent. Let us move it to /sys/kernel as discussed [1].

This patch applies on top of the previous patch that was applied to the
driver tree:
https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/1067310/

v2->v3: Fixed sysfs file mode nit (Greg).
v1->v2: Fixed some kconfig nits (Masami).
