Subject[PATCH 4.19 093/276] libbpf: fix samples/bpf build failure due to undefined UINT32_MAX
[ Upstream commit 32e621e55496a0009f44fe4914cd4a23cade4984 ]

Currently, building bpf samples will cause the following error.

./tools/lib/bpf/bpf.h:132:27: error: 'UINT32_MAX' undeclared here (not in a function) ..
#define BPF_LOG_BUF_SIZE (UINT32_MAX >> 8) /* verifier maximum in kernels <= 5.1 */
./samples/bpf/bpf_load.h:31:25: note: in expansion of macro 'BPF_LOG_BUF_SIZE'
extern char bpf_log_buf[BPF_LOG_BUF_SIZE];

Due to commit 4519efa6f8ea ("libbpf: fix BPF_LOG_BUF_SIZE off-by-one error")
hard-coded size of BPF_LOG_BUF_SIZE has been replaced with UINT32_MAX which is
defined in <stdint.h> header.

Even with this change, bpf selftests are running fine since these are built
with clang and it includes header(-idirafter) from clang/6.0.0/include.
(it has <stdint.h>)

clang -I. -I./include/uapi -I../../../include/uapi -idirafter /usr/local/include -idirafter /usr/include \
-idirafter /usr/lib/llvm-6.0/lib/clang/6.0.0/include -idirafter /usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu \
-Wno-compare-distinct-pointer-types -O2 -target bpf -emit-llvm -c progs/test_sysctl_prog.c -o - | \
llc -march=bpf -mcpu=generic -filetype=obj -o /linux/tools/testing/selftests/bpf/test_sysctl_prog.o

But bpf samples are compiled with GCC, and it only searches and includes
headers declared at the target file. As '#include <stdint.h>' hasn't been
declared in tools/lib/bpf/bpf.h, it causes build failure of bpf samples.

gcc -Wp,-MD,./samples/bpf/.sockex3_user.o.d -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -Wstrict-prototypes \
-O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -std=gnu89 -I./usr/include -I./tools/lib/ -I./tools/testing/selftests/bpf/ \
-I./tools/ lib/ -I./tools/include -I./tools/perf -c -o ./samples/bpf/sockex3_user.o ./samples/bpf/sockex3_user.c;

This commit add declaration of '#include <stdint.h>' to tools/lib/bpf/bpf.h
to fix this problem.
