[BPF] add code-gen support for JMP32 instructions

Description

[BPF] add code-gen support for JMP32 instructions

JMP32 instructions has been added to eBPF ISA. They are 32-bit variants of
existing BPF conditional jump instructions, but the comparison happens on
low 32-bit sub-register only, therefore some unnecessary extensions could
be saved.

JMP32 instructions will only be available for -mcpu=v3. Host probe hook has
been updated accordingly.

JMP32 instructions will only be enabled in code-gen when -mattr=+alu32
enabled, meaning compiling the program using sub-register mode.

For JMP32 encoding, it is a new instruction class, and is using the
reserved eBPF class number 0x6.

This patch has been tested by compiling and running kernel bpf selftests
with JMP32 enabled.
