Thanks for confirming.

Please also put these details in the commit log.
I was slow. With only '%' as a unit, it took me a min to guess
what t-put may mean ;)

As mentioned earlier, prefer to have one way to do the same thing
for checking with a fullsock.

I didn't mean to change it to a function. I actually think,
for the sk context, it should eventually be folded with the existing
cgroup_bpf_enabled() macro because those are the tests to ensure
there is bpf prog to run before proceeding.
Need to audit about the non fullsock case. not sure yet.

I think it is unimportant unless it is measurable in normal
use case.

Ok. I won't insist. There are atype that may not have sk, so
a separate inline function for checking emptiness may eventually
be useful there.

Leaving CGROUP_BPF_TYPE_ENABLED as macro is fine.
