net: filter: add jited flag to indicate jit compiled filters
This patch adds a jited flag into sk_filter struct in order to indicate whether a filter is currently jited or not. The size of sk_filter is not being expanded as the 32 bit 'len' member allows upper bits to be reused since a filter can currently only grow as large as BPF_MAXINSNS. Therefore, there's enough room also for other in future needed flags to reuse 'len' field if necessary. The jited flag also allows for having alternative interpreter functions running as currently, we can only detect jit compiled filters by testing fp->bpf_func to not equal the address of sk_run_filter(). Joint work with Alexei Starovoitov.
