Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.2 020/123] libbpf: sanitize VAR to conservative 1-byte INT
Date
From: Andrii Nakryiko <andriin@fb.com>

[ Upstream commit 1d4126c4e1190d2f7d3f388552f9bd17ae0c64fc ]

If VAR in non-sanitized BTF was size less than 4, converting such VAR
into an INT with size=4 will cause BTF validation failure due to
violationg of STRUCT (into which DATASEC was converted) member size.
Fix by conservatively using size=1.
