There is a way to do this. You can use the similar mechanism to
the one in linux:samples/bpf and linux:tools/testing/selftests/bpf.

Basically, you first do:
   clang ... -O2 -emit-llvm -S prog.c <=== this uses x86_64 as the 
default target
   llc -march=bpf -filetype=obj prog.ll <=== this uses bpf target
This should work.
