yes

yes, it was dummy specifically

Why? CGROUP_BPF_TYPE_ENABLED can't be a function atm because of header
dependency hell, and so it'd kill some of typization, which doesn't add
clarity. And also it imposes some extra overhead to *sockopt using
the first helper directly.

I think it's better with two of them. I could inline the second
one, but it wouldn't have been pretty.

yeah, sure
