libbpf: Update gen_loader to emit BTF_KIND_FUNC relocations

This change updates the BPF syscall loader to relocate BTF_KIND_FUNC
relocations, with support for weak kfunc relocations. The general idea
is to move map_fds to loader map, and also use the data for storing
kfunc BTF fds. Since both reuse the fd_array parameter, they need to be
kept together.

For map_fds, we reserve MAX_USED_MAPS slots in a region, and for kfunc,
we reserve MAX_KFUNC_DESCS. This is done so that insn->off has more
chances of being <= INT16_MAX than treating data map as a sparse array
and adding fd as needed.

When the MAX_KFUNC_DESCS limit is reached, we fall back to the sparse
array model, so that as long as it does remain <= INT16_MAX, we pass an
index relative to the start of fd_array.

We store all ksyms in an array where we try to avoid calling the
bpf_btf_find_by_name_kind helper, and also reuse the BTF fd that was
already stored. This also speeds up the loading process compared to
emitting calls in all cases, in later tests.
