Subject: Typical way to handle missing macros in vmlinux.h
Date: Wed, 28 Apr 2021 15:13:06 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAO658oV9AAcMMbVhjkoq5PtpvbVf41Cd_TBLCORTcf3trtwHfw@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

Hi all,

I'm working on enabling CO:RE in a project I work on, tracee, and am
running into the dilemma of missing macros that we previously were
able to import from their various header files. I understand that
macros don't make their way into BTF and therefore the generated
vmlinux.h won't have them. However I can't import the various header
files because of multiple-definition issues.

Do people typically redefine each of these macros for their project?
If so is there anything I should be careful of, such as architectural
differences. Does anyone have creative ideas, even if not developed
fully yet that I can possibly contribute to libbpf?

Thanks so much,
Grant Seltzer
