Log Message:
bpf: bpf_devices_cgroup_supported() should check if bpf() is available

bpf_devices_cgroup_supported() tries to load a simple BPF program to
test if BPF works. This is problematic because the function used to load
the program - bpf_program_load_kernel() - emits an error to the log if
BPF is not enabled in the kernel although device controller is not
requested in the configuration. Users could interpret that as a problem.

Make bpf_devices_cgroup_supported() check if the BPF syscall is available
before calling bpf_program_load_kernel(). We can do it by passing a NULL
pointer instead of the syscall argument as the kernel returns either
ENOSYS, when the syscall is not implemented or EFAULT, when it is
