We have a usecase where we want to audit symbol names (if available) in
callback registration hooks. (ex: fentry/nf_register_net_hook)

A few months back, I proposed a bpf_kallsyms_lookup series but it was
decided in the reviews that a more generic helper, bpf_snprintf, would
be more useful.

This series implements the helper according to the feedback received in

- A new arg type guarantees the NULL-termination of string arguments and
  lets us pass format strings in only one arg
- A new helper is implemented using that guarantee. Because the format
  string is known at verification time, the format string validation is
  done by the verifier
- To implement a series of tests for bpf_snprintf, the logic for
  marshalling variadic args in a fixed-size array is reworked as per:

Changes in v5:
- Fixed the bpf_printf_buf_used counter logic in try_get_fmt_tmp_buf
- Added a couple of extra incorrect specifiers tests
- Call test_snprintf_single__destroy unconditionally
- Fixed a C++-style comment

Changes in v4:
- Moved bpf_snprintf, bpf_printf_prepare and bpf_printf_cleanup to
  kernel/bpf/helpers.c so that they get built without CONFIG_BPF_EVENTS
- Added negative test cases (various invalid format strings)
- Renamed put_fmt_tmp_buf() as bpf_printf_cleanup()
- Fixed a mistake that caused temporary buffers to be unconditionally
  freed in bpf_printf_prepare
- Fixed a mistake that caused missing 0 character to be ignored
- Fixed a warning about integer to pointer conversion
- Misc cleanups

Changes in v3:
- Simplified temporary buffer acquisition with try_get_fmt_tmp_buf()
- Made zero-termination check more consistent
- Allowed NULL output_buffer
- Simplified the BPF_CAST_FMT_ARG macro
- Three new test cases: number padding, simple string with no arg and
  string length extraction only with a NULL output buffer
- Clarified helper's description for edge cases (eg: str_size == 0)
- Lots of cosmetic changes

Changes in v2:
- Extracted the format validation/argument sanitization in a generic way
  for all printf-like helpers.
- bpf_snprintf's str_size can now be 0
- bpf_snprintf is now exposed to all BPF program types
- We now preempt_disable when using a per-cpu temporary buffer
- Addressed a few cosmetic changes
