bpf_sk_storage can already be used by some BPF program types to annotate
socket objects. These annotations are managed with the life-cycle of the
object (i.e. freed when the object is freed) which makes BPF programs
much simpler and less prone to errors and leaks.

This patch series:

* Generalizes the bpf_sk_storage infrastructure to allow easy
  implementation of local storage for other objects
* Implements local storage for inodes
* Makes both bpf_{sk, inode}_storage available to LSM programs.

Local storage is safe to use in LSM programs as the attachment sites are
limited and the owning object won't be freed, however, this is not the
case for tracing. Usage in tracing is expected to follow a white-list
based approach similar to the d_path helper
(https://lore.kernel.org/bpf/20200506132946.2164578-1-jolsa@kernel.org).

Access to local storage would allow LSM programs to implement stateful
detections like detecting the unlink of a running executable from the
examples shared as a part of the KRSI series
https://lore.kernel.org/bpf/20200329004356.27286-1-kpsingh@chromium.org/
and
