To work with the different program types, map types, attach types etc.
supported by eBPF, bpftool needs occasional updates to learn about the new
features supported by the kernel. When such types translate into new
keyword for the command line, updates are expected in several locations:
typically, the help message displayed from bpftool itself, the manual page,
and the bash completion file should be updated. The options used by the
different commands for bpftool should also remain synchronised at those
locations.

Several omissions have occurred in the past, and a number of types are
still missing today. This set is an attempt to improve the situation. It
brings up-to-date the lists of types or options in bpftool, and also adds a
Python script to the BPF selftests to automatically check that most of
these lists remain synchronised.

Quentin Monnet (7):
  tools: bpftool: slightly ease bash completion updates
  selftests/bpf: check consistency between bpftool source, doc,
    completion
  tools: bpftool: complete and synchronise attach or map types
  tools: bpftool: update and synchronise option list in doc and help msg
  selftests/bpf: update bpftool's consistency script for checking
    options
  tools: bpftool: document and add bash completion for -L, -B options
  tools: bpftool: complete metrics list in "bpftool prog profile" doc
