ebpf: add helper for obtaining current processor id
This patch adds the possibility to obtain raw_smp_processor_id() in eBPF. Currently, this is only possible in classic BPF where commit da2033c28226 ("filter: add SKF_AD_RXHASH and SKF_AD_CPU") has added facilities for this. Perhaps most importantly, this would also allow us to track per CPU statistics with eBPF maps, or to implement a poor-man's per CPU data structure through eBPF maps. Example function proto-type looks like: u32 (*smp_processor_id)(void) = (void *)BPF_FUNC_get_smp_processor_id; Signed-off-by: Daniel Borkmann <> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>
