Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 179/205] bpf: Support pre-2.25-binutils objcopy for vmlinux BTF

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

[ Upstream commit da5fb18225b49b97bb37c51bcbbb2990a507c364 ]

If vmlinux BTF generation fails, but CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_BTF is set,
.BTF section of vmlinux is empty and kernel will prohibit
BPF loading and return "in-kernel BTF is malformed".

--dump-section argument to binutils' objcopy was added in version 2.25.
When using pre-2.25 binutils, BTF generation silently fails. Convert
to --only-section which is present on pre-2.25 binutils.

Documentation/process/changes.rst states that binutils 2.21+
is supported, not sure those standards apply to BPF subsystem.

v2:
* exit and print an error if gen_btf fails (John Fastabend)

v3:
* resend with Andrii's Acked-by/Tested-by tags

Fixes: 341dfcf8d78ea ("btf: expose BTF info through sysfs")
