Well, you don't have to store actual pointer, right? E.g, emitting
something like this in assembly:

.global __BTF_ID___some_function
.type __BTF_ID___some_function, @object
.size __BTF_ID___some_function, 4
__BTF_ID___some_function:
.zero  4

Would reserve 4 bytes and emit __BTF_ID___some_function symbol. If we
can then post-process vmlinux image and for all symbols starting with
__BTF_ID___ find some_function BTF type id and put it into those 4
bytes, that should work, no?

Maybe generalize it to __BTF_ID__{func,struct,typedef}__some_function,
whatever, not sure. Just an idea.
