Unfortunately, this has broken regexes...

You don't need to escape the / when using m@@, and this doesn't work
given the leading / after @, and it should use a trailing $

	return $realfile =~ m@...ols/testing/selftests/bpf/progs/.*\.c$@ ||

> +		$realfile =~ m@...mples\/bpf\/.*_kern.c@ ||

This is still missing an escape on the . before c@, and there's no
trailing $ between c and @

		$realfile =~ m@...mples/bpf/.*_kern\.c$@ ||

I believe I showed the correct regexes in my earlier reply.
