Seems like you are getting module BTF with absolutely no types and
strings, and BTF verification fails for such case (currently). Can you
please share your .config, and also let me know what version of pahole
do you have (pahole --version)? Thanks!

The fix is to allow such "empty" BTF, most probably, but I'd like to
double-check nothing fishy is going on before that.
