In order to enable the older kernel to use the CO-RE feature, load the
vmlinux btf of the specified path.

Learn from Andrii's comments in [0], add the custom_btf_path parameter
to bpf_obj_open_opts, you can directly use the skeleton's
<objname>_bpf__open_opts function to pass in the custom_btf_path
parameter.

Prior to this, there was also a developer who provided a patch with
similar functions. It is a pity that the follow-up did not continue to
advance. See [1].
