LIBBPF_VERSION is used below, but combining your suggestion with
Jakub's eager evaluation, I can use just LIBBPF_VERSION and drop
BPF_FULL_VERSION altogether.

Ah, you mean making regex simpler? Yeah, I originally intended to
extract major, patch, and extra version, but ralized patch and extra
are not used for anything. I'll simplify regex. But second `cut -d' '
-f1` is still needed to drop " {".

Regarding sorting. I don't think it's necessary, as I can't imagine
having non-ordered libbpf.map. Even more so, sort -nr doesn't sort
versions like these correctly anyway:

0.1.2
0.1.12

So this will just give us false sense of correctness, while being a "time bomb".

This is actually fixing a version. Current libbpf version in bpf-next
is 0.0.5, it just was never updated in Makefile.
