Request for eBPF patches into the 5.4 kernel

Bug #1887740 reported by Khaled El Mously
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux-gke-5.4 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The cloud vendor is requesting backport of 13 patches from upstream. These changes are mostly improvements to the bpf networking-related code.

Please see the SalesForce case for more information:

Without these patches, BPF functionality is incomplete in current 5.4 kernels

Add missing (networking) BPF code from upstream.

The cloud vendor has tested these patches, before submitting them upsteam and then backporting for the Ubuntu 5.4 kernel

[Regression Potential]
Low. These changes are mostly extending BPF functionality in the net code not changing existing code.
