Subject: [PATCH bpf-next 1/2] libbpf: Support uniform BTF-defined key/value specification across all BPF maps
Date: Sun,  5 Sep 2021 18:09:13 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210905100914.33007-1-hengqi.chen@gmail.com> (raw)

A bunch of BPF maps do not support specifying types for key and value.
This is non-uniform and inconvenient[0]. Currently, libbpf uses a retry
logic which removes BTF type IDs when BPF map creation failed. Instead
of retrying, this commit recognizes those specialized map and removes
BTF type IDs when creating BPF map.

  [0] Closes: https://github.com/libbpf/libbpf/issues/355
