The LLVM patch https://reviews.llvm.org/D72197, which is merged to llvm 
trunk on Sunday (01/12), emitted function call relocations within the
same section. This breaks libbpf and selftests as libbpf assumes no same
section relocations.

To work around the issue, after you pull in latest llvm, just checkout
the commit before the following one:
    commit 2bfee35cb860859b436de0b780fbd00d68e198a4

    [MC][ELF] Emit a relocation if target is defined in the same section
    and is non-local

don't use linkage field 'unique' with -no-integrated-as

libbpf and selftests should work again.

The issue will be addressed soon.
