	help
	  BPF programs are normally handled by a BPF interpreter. This option
	  allows the kernel to generate native code when a program is loaded
	  into the kernel. This will significantly speed-up processing of BPF
	  programs.

	  Note, an admin should enable this feature changing:
	  /proc/sys/net/core/bpf_jit_enable
	  /proc/sys/net/core/bpf_jit_harden   (optional)
	  /proc/sys/net/core/bpf_jit_kallsyms (optional)

config BPF_JIT_ALWAYS_ON
	bool "Permanently enable BPF JIT and remove BPF interpreter"
	depends on BPF_SYSCALL && HAVE_EBPF_JIT && BPF_JIT
	help
	  Enables BPF JIT and removes BPF interpreter to avoid speculative
	  execution of BPF instructions by the interpreter.

	  When CONFIG_BPF_JIT_ALWAYS_ON is enabled, /proc/sys/net/core/bpf_jit_enable
	  is permanently set to 1 and setting any other value than that will
	  return failure.

	depends on HAVE_EBPF_JIT && BPF_JIT

config BPF_UNPRIV_DEFAULT_OFF
	bool "Disable unprivileged BPF by default"
	default y
	depends on BPF_SYSCALL
	help
	  Disables unprivileged BPF by default by setting the corresponding
	  /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_bpf_disabled knob to 2. An admin can
	  still reenable it by setting it to 0 later on, or permanently
	  disable it by setting it to 1 (from which no other transition to
	  0 is possible anymore).

	  Unprivileged BPF could be used to exploit certain potential
	  speculative execution side-channel vulnerabilities on unmitigated
	  affected hardware.

	  If you are unsure how to answer this question, answer Y.

	  implementing dynamic MAC and Audit Policies.
