In case people want to reproduce this, my branch is here:

The problem with referring to the generated files is that they don't exist
unless you've configured the main source directory. The real problem here
seems to be that tools/bpf/ refers directly to header files in the kernel
sources without any understanding of kbuild, and therefore mandatory-y
headers simply don't exist when it goes looking for them.

Perhaps it's possible to introduce a dependency on a top-level "make
asm-generic" so that we can reference the generated headers from the arch
directly. Thoughts?
