I don't think this is right. Keep in mind the general case where
vmlinux BTF might be available, but user wants to perform CO-RE using
custom BTF (like we do in our selftests in core_reloc.c). In such
cases all the other features that rely on vmlinux BTF would use real
vmlinux BTF, but CO-RE relocations would use custom BTF. See the
original patch you are referencing, it loaded btf_override separately
from obj->btf_vmlinux.

we are leaking obj here

And a few lines below. You didn't introduce this bug, I just spotted
it while reviewing your patch, but it would be nice to fix it as well.
