Subject: [PATCH bpf-next v2 0/5] libbpf: rename btf__get_from_id() and btf__load() APIs, support split BTF

As part of the effort to move towards a v1.0 for libbpf [0], this set
improves some confusing function names related to BTF loading from and to
the kernel:

- btf__load() becomes btf__load_into_kernel().
- btf__get_from_id becomes btf__load_from_kernel_by_id().
- A new version btf__load_from_kernel_by_id_split() extends the former to
  add support for split BTF.

The old functions are not removed or marked as deprecated yet, there
should be in a future libbpf version.

The last patch is a trivial change to bpftool to add support for dumping
split BTF objects by referencing them by their id (and not only by their
BTF path).


- Remove deprecation marking of legacy functions (patch 4/6 from v1).
- Make btf__load_from_kernel_by_id{,_split}() return the btf struct.
- Add new functions to v0.5.0 API (and not v0.6.0).

Quentin Monnet (5):
  libbpf: rename btf__load() as btf__load_into_kernel()
  libbpf: rename btf__get_from_id() as btf__load_from_kernel_by_id()
  tools: replace btf__get_from_id() with btf__load_from_kernel_by_id()
  libbpf: add split BTF support for btf__load_from_kernel_by_id()
  tools: bpftool: support dumping split BTF by id
