This document specifies the BPF instruction set architecture (ISA). The
document is clear and well-written. No major issues were found, just some minor

Major issues: None
Minor issues: None
Nits/editorial comments:

* In the introduction, maybe?: "eBPF (which is no longer an acronym for
anything), also commonly referred to as BPF" --> eBPF (which originally stood
for "extended Berkeley Packet Filter" but is no longer an acronym), also
commonly referred to as BPF...

* It would be nice to add caption to the tables (from Table 3 to Table 18).

Thanks for this document,
