I have the same issue with v3.82 make.

We could adjust the include orders in samples/bpf/Makefile
  KBUILD_HOSTCFLAGS += -I$(objtree)/usr/include
                                     │······
  KBUILD_HOSTCFLAGS += -I$(srctree)/tools/lib/
                                     │······
  KBUILD_HOSTCFLAGS += -I$(srctree)/tools/testing/selftests/bpf/
                                     │······
  KBUILD_HOSTCFLAGS += -I$(srctree)/tools/lib/
-I$(srctree)/tools/include                                   │······
  KBUILD_HOSTCFLAGS += -I$(srctree)/tools/perf
to switch $(objtree)/usr/include and $(srctree)/tools/include, but it
looks it has
some side effects on some other programs.

So your solution seems reasonable to me.
