Subject: [PATCH v2 bpf-next 0/3] Auto-generate list of BPF helpers
Date: Sat, 5 Oct 2019 20:20:05 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20191006032008.2571427-1-andriin@fb.com> (raw)

This patch set adds ability to auto-generate list of BPF helper definitions.
It relies on existing scripts/bpf_helpers_doc.py and include/uapi/linux/bpf.h
having a well-defined set of comments. bpf_helper_defs.h contains all BPF
helper signatures which stay in sync with latest bpf.h UAPI. This
auto-generated header is included from bpf_helpers.h, while all previously
hand-written BPF helper definitions are simultaneously removed in patch #3.
The end result is less manually maintained and redundant boilerplate code,
while also more consistent and well-documented set of BPF helpers. Generated
helper definitions are completely independent from a specific bpf.h on
a target system, because it doesn't use BPF_FUNC_xxx enums.

- add bpf_helper_defs.h to .gitignore and `make clean` (Alexei);
