[PATCH v4 1/2] kheaders: Move from proc to sysfs




The kheaders archive consisting of the kernel headers used for compiling
bpf programs is in /proc. However there is concern that moving it here
will make it permanent. Let us move it to /sys/kernel as discussed [1].

v2->v3: Fixed sysfs file mode nit (Greg).
v1->v2: Fixed some kconfig nits (Masami).
