When we added BTF dedup and generation first time, we also made pahole
unavailability or any error during deduplication process an error. It
actually was very confusing to users and they often missed that BTF
generation didn't happen, but they would notice it only at runtime
(after a confusing debugging session).

So I wonder if it's better to make this an error instead? Just guard
whitelist generation on whether CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_BTF is enabled or
not?

what about install/clean subcommands? At least clean seems like a good idea?
