Subject: [PATCH bpf-next] scripts/bpf: Print an error when known types list needs updating
Date: Thu, 17 Oct 2019 11:44:16 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20191017094416.7688-1-jakub@cloudflare.com> (raw)

Don't generate a broken bpf_helper_defs.h header if the helper script needs
updating because it doesn't recognize a newly added type. Instead print an
error that explains why the build is failing and stop.

Fixes: 456a513bb5d4 ("scripts/bpf: Emit an #error directive known types list needs updating")
