new bpf related features -> bpf-next tree
bpf bugfixes -> bpf tree

Linus hasn't pulled Dave's PR yet: https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1066321/
We need these fixes to land his tree first,
then get propagated into net-next and then bpf-next will get them as well.
Sorry for this unfortunate delay.
This lib/bpf/Makefile conflict is not the only one we're waiting for.
There are verifier and other libbpf fixes in there.
