Yeah, so XDP has a headroom of XDP_PACKET_HEADROOM + NET_IP_ALIGN which in case
of x86 is 256 bytes (NET_IP_ALIGN being 0 there). This means that
buffer needs to be 256 bytes larger than attr.test.data_in in case the BPF prog
calls bpf_xdp_adjust_head() or bpf_xdp_adjust_meta(). In case you point data_in
and data_out to the same address, then the total buffer size therefore has to be
attr.test.data_size_in + 256 in order to not overrun anything while not being
aware of the BPF test program. The XDP_PACKET_HEADROOM is exposed to user space
