Looks good, it's a clear improvement on what we had before, thanks!

It doesn't re-build bpftool when bpftool sources changes, but I think
it was like that even before, so no need to block on that. Would be
nice to have a follow up fixing that, though. $(wildcard
$(BPFTOOL_DIR)/*.[ch] $(BPFTOOL_DIR)/Makefile) should do it, same as
for libbpf.

So, for the series:
