[PATCH bpf-next 0/3] libbpf: btf typed data dumping fixes (__int128 usage, error propagation)
From: Alan Maguire
Date: Mon Jul 19 2021 - 18:20:49 EST
This series aims to resolve further issues with the BTF typed data
dumping interfaces in libbpf.
Compilation failures with use of __int128 on 32-bit platforms were
reported . As a result, the use of __int128 in libbpf typed data
dumping is replaced with __u64 usage for bitfield manipulations.
In the case of 128-bit integer values, they are simply split into
two 64-bit hex values for display (patch 1).
Tests are added for __int128 display in patch 2, using conditional
compilation to avoid problems with a lack of __int128 support.
Patch 3 resolves an issue Andrii noted about error propagation
when handling enum data display.
More followup work is required to ensure multi-dimensional char array
display works correctly.
Alan Maguire (3):
libbpf: avoid use of __int128 in typed dump display
selftests/bpf: add __int128-specific tests for typed data dump
libbpf: propagate errors when retrieving enum value for typed data
