Some BPF programs may use XOR of a register with itself
as a way to zero register in one instruction.
The BPF filter converter generates this in the prolog
to the generated code.

The BPF validator would not allow this because the value of
register was undefined. But after this operation it always zero.

Fixes: 8021917293d0 ("bpf: add extra validation for input BPF program")
