tools: bpftool: pass an argument to silence open_obj_pinned()
Function open_obj_pinned() prints error messages when it fails to open a link in the BPF virtual file system. However, in some occasions it is not desirable to print an error, for example when we parse all links under the bpffs root, and the error is due to some paths actually being symbolic links. Example output: # ls -l /sys/fs/bpf/ lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Oct 18 19:00 ip -> /sys/fs/bpf/tc/ drwx------ 3 root root 0 Oct 18 19:00 tc lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Oct 18 19:00 xdp -> /sys/fs/bpf/tc/ # bpftool --bpffs prog show Error: bpf obj get (/sys/fs/bpf): Permission denied Error: bpf obj get (/sys/fs/bpf): Permission denied # strace -e bpf bpftool --bpffs prog show bpf(BPF_OBJ_GET, {pathname="/sys/fs/bpf/ip", bpf_fd=0}, 72) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied) Error: bpf obj get (/sys/fs/bpf): Permission denied bpf(BPF_OBJ_GET, {pathname="/sys/fs/bpf/xdp", bpf_fd=0}, 72) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied) Error: bpf obj get (/sys/fs/bpf): Permission denied ... To fix it, pass a bool as a second argument to the function, and prevent it from printing an error when the argument is set to true.
