This actually seems to break horribly on PPC64le with binutils 2.33.1
resulting in:
Warning: Num of global symbols in sharedobjs/libbpf-in.o (32) does NOT
match with num of versioned symbols in libbpf.so (184). Please make
sure all LIBBPF_API symbols are versioned in libbpf.map.

This is the only arch that fails, with x86/arm/aarch64/s390 all
building fine.  Reverting this patch allows successful build across
all arches.
