Thanks for this Yonghong!  I'm thinking the way I'll tackle it
is to simply verify that the upper 32 bits specifying the
veth module object id are non-zero; if they are zero, we'll skip
the test (I think a skip probably makes sense as not everyone will
have llvm12). Does that seem reasonable?

With the additional few minor changes on top of Andrii's patch,
the use of __builtin_btf_type_id() worked perfectly. Thanks!

Alan
