Subject: [PATCH v2 bpf-next 0/2] Strip away modifiers from BPF skeleton global variables

Fix bpftool logic of stripping away const/volatile modifiers for all global
variables during BPF skeleton generation. See patch #1 for details on when
existing logic breaks and why it's important. Support special .strip_mods=true
mode in btf_dump__emit_type_decl.

Recent example of when this has caused problems can be found in [0].
