Replied to your patch. I still think simply adding
#include <linux/bpf.h> here like I did in this patch is much cleaner.
That's the whole purpose of uapi header to be used in such libraries
and apps. Copy-pasting enum bpf_prog_type from bpf.h into bunch of
macros in libbpf.h just doesn't look right and likely an indication
that whatever you do with your proprietary stuff is fragile.
Clearly you're trying to avoid including bpf.h not because of perf,
which has its own copy of bpf.h in tools/include/
Just like iproute2 has its copy of bpf.h as well.
