ebpf: add skb->hash to offset map for usage in {cls, act}_bpf or filters

Add skb->hash to the __sk_buff offset map, so it can be accessed from
an eBPF program. We currently already do this for classic BPF filters,
but not yet on eBPF, it might be useful as a demuxer in combination with
helpers like bpf_clone_redirect(), toy example:

  __section("cls-lb") int ingress_main(struct __sk_buff *skb)
    unsigned int which = 3 + (skb->hash & 7);
    /* bpf_skb_store_bytes(skb, ...); */
    /* bpf_l{3,4}_csum_replace(skb, ...); */
    bpf_clone_redirect(skb, which, 0);
    return -1;

I was thinking whether to add skb_get_hash(), but then concluded the
raw skb->hash seems fine in this case: we can directly access the hash
w/o extra eBPF helper function call, it's filled out by many NICs on
ingress, and in case the entropy level would not be sufficient, people
can still implement their own specific sw fallback hash mix anyway.
