+eBPF Userspace API
+==================
+
+eBPF is a kernel mechanism to provide a sandboxed runtime environment in the
+Linux kernel for runtime extension and instrumentation without changing kernel
+source code or loading kernel modules. eBPF programs can be attached to various
+kernel subsystems, including networking, tracing and Linux security modules
+(LSM).
+
+For internal kernel documentation on eBPF, see Documentation/bpf/index.rst.
