So, if I go to the cset just before:

commit f5caf621ee357279e759c0911daf6d55c7d36f03
Author: Josh Poimboeuf <>

x86/asm: Fix inline asm call constraints for Clang

'perf test LLVM' works again:

[root@jouet ~]# perf test LLVM
37: LLVM search and compile :
37.1: Basic BPF llvm compile : Ok
37.2: kbuild searching : Ok
37.3: Compile source for BPF prologue generation : Ok
37.4: Compile source for BPF relocation : Ok
[root@jouet ~]#

I.e. 'perf test LLVM' built from what is in my acme/perf/urgent branch,
targetted to v4.15, uses kernel headers and if I go to just before
f5caf621ee, it works again, both with clang from fedora26 (4.0.1) and
with 6.0, built from sources.

'perf test BPF' breaks for another reason, needs another investigation,
maybe you guys can spot something changed recently in that area:

libbpf: failed to create map (name: 'flip_table'): Invalid argument
libbpf: failed to load object '[basic_bpf_test]'

Complete logs up to this error are below, I'll go read Yonghong message
to see if I can get the 'perf test LLVM' case fixed.
