Subject: [PATCH bpf-next 0/2] CO-RE relocation support for flexible arrays

Add support for flexible array accesses in a relocatable manner in BPF CO-RE.
It's a typical pattern in C, and kernel in particular, to provide
a fixed-length struct with zero-sized or dimensionless array at the end. In
such cases variable-sized array contents follows immediately after the end of
a struct. This patch set adds support for such access pattern by allowing
accesses to such arrays.

Patch #1 adds libbpf support. Patch #2 adds few test cases for validation.

Andrii Nakryiko (2):
  libbpf: support flexible arrays in CO-RE
  selftests/bpf: add flexible array relocation tests
