sizeof(struct btf_show) == 472
It's allocated on stack and called from bpf prog.
It's a leaf function, but it still worries me a bit.
I've trimmed it down to 32 and everything seems to be printing fine.
There will be more calls to copy_from_kernel_nofault(), but so what?
Is there a downside to make it that small?

Similarly state.name is 128 bytes. May be use 80 there?
I think that should be plenty still.

'struct obj' doesn't exist. It's an anon field 'struct {} obj;' inside btf_show
that you're referring to, right?
Would be good to fix this comment.

buildbot complained that this field needs to be annotated.

Does it have to be a macro? What are you gaining from macro
instead of vararg function?

please remove all 'inline' from .c file.
There is no need to give such hints to the compiler.

Similarly I don't understand the benefit of macros.
They all could have been normal functions.

drop 'inline' pls.

Is this ok to ignore the error?
