tools/bpf: add const qualifier to btf__get_map_kv_tids() map_name parameter
Commit 96408c43447a ("tools/bpf: implement libbpf btf__get_map_kv_tids() API function") added the API function btf__get_map_kv_tids(): btf__get_map_kv_tids(const struct btf *btf, char *map_name, ...) The parameter map_name has type "char *". This is okay inside libbpf library since the map_name is from bpf_map->name which also has type "char *". This will be problematic if the caller for map_name already has attribute "const", e.g., from C++ string.c_str(). It will result in either a warning or an error. /home/yhs/work/bcc/src/cc/btf.cc:166:51: error: invalid conversion from ‘const char*’ to ‘char*’ [-fpermissive] return btf__get_map_kv_tids(btf_, map_name.c_str() This patch added "const" attributes to map_name parameter.
