Where size is one of: BPF_B or BPF_H or BPF_W or BPF_DW. Note that 1 and
2 byte atomic increments are not supported.
+eBPF has one 16-byte instruction: BPF_LD | BPF_DW | BPF_IMM which consists
+of two consecutive 'struct bpf_insn' 8-byte blocks and interpreted as single

+32-bit immediate value into a register.
