Subject: [PATCH v5 bpf-next 0/2] bpf: Add a new API libbpf_num_possible_cpus()
Date: Fri, 7 Jun 2019 19:19:23 -0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Getting number of possible CPUs is commonly used for per-CPU BPF maps
and perf_event_maps. Add a new API libbpf_num_possible_cpus() that
helps user with per-CPU related operations and remove duplicate
implementations in bpftool and selftests.

v2: Save errno before calling pr_warning in case it is changed.
v3: Make sure libbpf_num_possible_cpus never returns 0 so that user only has 
    to check if ret value < 0.
v4: Fix error code when reading 0 bytes from possible CPU file.
v5: Fix selftests compliation issue.

Hechao Li (2):
  bpf: add a new API libbpf_num_possible_cpus()
  bpf: use libbpf_num_possible_cpus in bpftool and selftests
