perf tools: Allow to link with libbpf dynamicaly
Currently we support only static linking with kernel's libbpf (tools/lib/bpf). This patch adds libbpf package detection and support to link perf with it dynamically. The libbpf package status is displayed with: $ make VF=1 Auto-detecting system features: ... ... libbpf: [ on ] It's not checked by default, because it's quite new. Once it's on most distros we can switch it on. For the same reason it's not added to the test-all check. Perf does not need advanced version of libbpf, so we can check just for the base bpf_object__open function. Adding new compile variable to detect libbpf package and link bpf dynamically: $ make LIBBPF_DYNAMIC=1 ... LINK perf $ ldd perf | grep bpf libbpf.so.0 => /lib64/libbpf.so.0 (0x00007f46818bc000) If libbpf is not installed, build stops with: Makefile.config:486: *** Error: No libbpf devel library found,\ please install libbpf-devel.
