Subject: [PATCH bpf] bpf: Support llvm-objcopy for vmlinux BTF

Commit da5fb18225b4 ("bpf: Support pre-2.25-binutils objcopy for vmlinux
BTF") switched from --dump-section to
--only-section/--change-section-address for BTF export assuming
those ("legacy") options should cover all objcopy versions.

Turns out llvm-objcopy doesn't implement --change-section-address [1],
but it does support --dump-section. Let's partially roll back and
try to use --dump-section first and fall back to
--only-section/--change-section-address for the older binutils.

Fixes: df786c9b9476 ("bpf: Force .BTF section start to zero when dumping from vmlinux")
