Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 009/244] selftests/bpf: set RLIMIT_MEMLOCK properly for test_libbpf_open.c

From: Yonghong Song <>

[ Upstream commit 6cea33701eb024bc6c920ab83940ee22afd29139 ]

Test failed on my development server with failure
  -bash-4.4$ sudo ./
  [0] libbpf: Error in bpf_object__probe_name():Operation not permitted(1).
      Couldn't load basic 'r0 = 0' BPF program.
  test_libbpf: failed at file test_l4lb.o
  selftests: test_libbpf [FAILED]

The reason is because my machine has 64KB locked memory by default which
is not enough for this program to get locked memory.
Similar to other bpf selftests, let us increase RLIMIT_MEMLOCK
to infinity, which fixed the issue.
