we've considered several different ways of either extending or changing BTF api
to accommodate this unforeseen C langauge extension.
All of them require patches for the kernel 5.1 and 5.0 and/or llvm,
so we've decided to proceed with the existing kernel code and llvm
and only tweak btf dedup logic the way this patch does.

I've applied this set to bpf tree.
