Subject[PATCH bpf-next v3] bpftool: Use sysfs vmlinux when dumping BTF by ID
Date
Currently, dumping almost all BTFs specified by id requires
using the -B option to pass the base BTF. For kernel module
BTFs the vmlinux BTF sysfs path should work.

This patch simplifies dumping by ID usage by loading
vmlinux BTF from sysfs as base, if base BTF was not specified
and the ID corresponds to a kernel module BTF.

From v2[0]:
- instead of using vmlinux as base only after the first unsuccessful
attempt, set base to vmlinux before loading in applicable cases, precisely
if no base was provided by user and id belongs to a kernel module BTF.

From v1[1]:
- base BTF is assumed to be vmlinux only for kernel BTFs.
