Subject: [PATCH bpf] tools/bpf: fix bpftool build with OUTPUT set
Date: Thu, 18 Jul 2019 16:20:41 +0200	[thread overview]

Hi Lorenz,

I've been using the following patch for quite some time now.
Please let me know if it works for you.

Best regards,


When OUTPUT is set, bpftool and libbpf put their objects into the same
directory, and since some of them have the same names, the collision

Fix by invoking libbpf build in a manner similar to $(call descend) -
descend itself cannot be used, since libbpf is a sibling, and not a
child, of bpftool.

Also, don't link bpftool with libbpf.a twice.
