bpf: Force .BTF section start to zero when dumping from vmlinux
While trying to figure out why fentry_fexit selftest doesn't pass for me (old pahole, broken BTF), I found out that my latest patch can break vmlinux .BTF generation. objcopy preserves section start when doing --only-section, so there is a chance (depending on where pahole inserts .BTF section) to have leading empty zeroes. Let's explicitly force section offset to zero. Before: $ objcopy --set-section-flags .BTF=alloc -O binary \ --only-section=.BTF vmlinux .btf.vmlinux.bin $ xxd .btf.vmlinux.bin | head -n1 00000000: 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 ................ After: $ objcopy --change-section-address .BTF=0 \ --set-section-flags .BTF=alloc -O binary \ --only-section=.BTF vmlinux .btf.vmlinux.bin $ xxd .btf.vmlinux.bin | head -n1 00000000: 9feb 0100 1800 0000 0000 0000 80e1 1c00 ................ ^BTF magic As part of this change, I'm also dropping '2>/dev/null' from objcopy invocation to be able to catch possible other issues (objcopy doesn't produce any warnings for me anymore, it did before with --dump-section).
