nice, so something like below?

it'd be in .S file, or perhaps in inline asm, assuming I'll be
able to pass macro arguments to asm("")

with externs defined in some header file:

  extern const int bpf_skb_output_btf_ids[];
  extern const int btf_whitelist_d_path[];

  $ objdump -x ./kernel/bpf/whitelist.o
  ...
  0000000000000000 l     O .data  0000000000000004 __BTF_ID__func__vfs_truncate
  0000000000000004 l     O .data  0000000000000004 __BTF_ID__func__vfs_fallocate
  0000000000000008 l     O .data  0000000000000004 __BTF_ID__func__krava
  0000000000000010 l     O .data  0000000000000004 __BTF_ID__struct__sk_buff
  0000000000000000 g       .data  0000000000000000 btf_whitelist_d_path
  0000000000000010 g       .data  0000000000000000 bpf_skb_output_btf_ids

also it'd be nice to get rid of BTF_ID__ symbols in the final link

thanks,
jirka
