First, I hope you are fine and the same for your relatives.
In this patch, I added the command used to generate a BTF dump at the top of the
dump when outputting to C:
* File generated by bpftool using:
* bpftool btf dump file /sys/kernel/btf/vmlinux format c
* DO NOT EDIT.
The goal of this is to first warn users this file must not be edited and also
to document the command used to get it.
The idea was gathered from a message posted on iovisor/bcc repository and from
message written by bpf2go when it generates a file [1, 2].
This patch is clearly not a big change which impacts the future of bpftool but
I think it could be welcomed.
If you see any way to improve it or have any question, feel free to ask.
