Compiling bpftool (with libbpf now relying on bpf_helper_defs.h
generated from helpers documentation), I observe the following

    .output/bpf_helper_defs.h:2834:72: warning: declaration of 'struct bpf_pidns_info' will not be visible outside of this function [-Wvisibility]
    static int (*bpf_get_ns_current_pid_tgid)(__u64 dev, __u64 ino, struct bpf_pidns_info *nsdata, __u32 size) = (void *) 120;

Would it be possible to address this as part of the follow-up too,
please? I think the fix would be to add "struct bpf_pidns_info"
to type_fds (I see it was added to known_types already) in
