Subject: [PATCH bpf-next v3 0/3] tools: bpftool: print built-in features, automate some of the documentation

There are two changes for bpftool in this series.

The first one is a modification to the "version" command, to have it print
the status (compiled or not) of some of the optional features for bpftool.
This is to help determine if a bpftool binary is able to, for example,
disassemble JIT-compiled programs.

The last two patches try to automate the generation of some repetitive
sections in the man pages for bpftool, namely the description of the
options shared by all commands, and the "see also" section. The objective
is to make it easier to maintain the pages and to reduce the risk of
omissions when adding the documentation for new commands.

- Use a simple list of features (no boolean values) for plain output when
  dumping built-in features.

- Fix incorrect JSON output.
- Use "echo -n" instead of "printf" in Makefile to avoid the risk of
  passing and evaluating formatting strings.

Quentin Monnet (3):
  tools: bpftool: print optional built-in features along with version
  tools: bpftool: include common options from separate file
  tools: bpftool: automate generation for "SEE ALSO" sections in man
