Maybe Mircea, Kees or someone from linux-arm-kernel can help you out
on that.

With regards to the below benchmark, I was mentioning how it compares
to the interpreter. With only the numbers for jit it's hard to compare.
So would be great to see the output for the following three cases:

1) Interpreter:

echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/core/bpf_jit_enable

2) JIT enabled:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/core/bpf_jit_enable

3) JIT + blinding enabled:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/core/bpf_jit_enable
echo 2 > /proc/sys/net/core/bpf_jit_harden
