I think I have a new aphorism.

The size of any hardware oriented language grows until it can support
an infinite fifo queue.

Bpf queue map is a new kind of map that provides a LIFO/FIFO queue
implementation.

In some applications, like a SNAT, it is necessary to keep track of
a pool of free elemenets, network ports in this case, then a queue
can be used for that purpose.
