Subject: [RFC PATCH bpf-next 7/7] libbpf: detect minimal BTF support and skip BTF loading, if missing

Detect whether a kernel supports any BTF at all, and if not, don't even
attempt loading BTF to avoid unnecessary log messages like:

  libbpf: Error loading BTF: Invalid argument(22)
  libbpf: Error loading .BTF into kernel: -22. BTF is optional, ignoring.
