The change to use angled includes for bpf_helper_defs.h breaks compilation
against libbpf when it is installed in the include path, since the file is
installed in the bpf/ subdirectory of $INCLUDE_PATH. Fix this by adding the
bpf/ prefix to the #include directive.

Fixes: 6910d7d3867a ("selftests/bpf: Ensure bpf_helper_defs.h are taken from selftests dir")

Not actually sure this fix works for all the cases you originally tried to
fix with the referred commit; please check. Also, could we please stop breaking
libbpf builds? :)

This does break selftests/bpf. Have you tried building selftests, does
it work for you? We need to fix selftests simultaneously with this
change.

Which libbpf build is failing right now? Both github and in-kernel
libbpf builds are fine. You must be referring to something else. What
exactly?

I think it's better to just ensure that when compiling BPF programs,
they have -I/usr/include/bpf specified, so that all BPF-side headers
can be simply included as #include <bpf_helpers.h>, #include
<bpf_tracing.h>, etc

And break all programs that don't have that already? Just to make the
kernel build env slightly more convenient? Hardly friendly to the
library users, is it? :)

As far as selftests are concerned, I finally managed to get an LLVM
version that will build them all; so I'll test that tomorrow and send a
v2 that doesn't break them...

Could you explain the breakage ?
bpf_helpers.h and bpf_helper_defs.h are installed in the same location.
If prefix==/usr during make install of libbpf they both will go into
/usr/include/bpf

Are you saying the bpf progs had:
#include <bpf/bpf_helpers.h>
to pick that header from /usr/include and commit 6910d7d3867a that did:
+++ b/tools/lib/bpf/bpf_helpers.h
@@ -2,7 +2,7 @@
 #ifndef __BPF_HELPERS__
 #define __BPF_HELPERS__

-#include "bpf_helper_defs.h"
+#include <bpf_helper_defs.h>
broke it?
If so this bit needs to be reverted.
And we need a selfttest for such include order.

Yes. I get this error in xdp-tools[0] when updating lib/libbpf to the
latest upstream from github:

In file included from xdpfilt_blk_udp.c:10:

Yes, please! :)
Trying to convince the selftests Makefile to do the right thing; will
send a v2 of this patch if I succeed...
