Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 186/205] bpf: Force .BTF section start to zero when dumping from vmlinux

From: Stanislav Fomichev <sdf@...gle.com>

[ Upstream commit df786c9b947639aedbc7bb44b5dae2a7824af360 ]

While trying to figure out why fentry_fexit selftest doesn't pass for me
(old pahole, broken BTF), I found out that my latest patch can break vmlinux
.BTF generation. objcopy preserves section start when doing --only-section,
so there is a chance (depending on where pahole inserts .BTF section) to
have leading empty zeroes. Let's explicitly force section offset to zero.

Before:

$ objcopy --set-section-flags .BTF=alloc -O binary \
	--only-section=.BTF vmlinux .btf.vmlinux.bin
$ xxd .btf.vmlinux.bin | head -n1
00000000: 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000  ................

After:

$ objcopy --change-section-address .BTF=0 \
	--set-section-flags .BTF=alloc -O binary \
	--only-section=.BTF vmlinux .btf.vmlinux.bin
$ xxd .btf.vmlinux.bin | head -n1
00000000: 9feb 0100 1800 0000 0000 0000 80e1 1c00  ................
          ^BTF magic

As part of this change, I'm also dropping '2>/dev/null' from objcopy
invocation to be able to catch possible other issues (objcopy doesn't
produce any warnings for me anymore, it did before with --dump-section).
