Before this patch:

$ cd ~/build/linux/tools/bpf/runqslower
$ make
Makefile:18: *** "Can't detect kernel BTF, use VMLINUX_BTF to specify it explicitly". Stop.

$ make VMLINUX_BTF=~/build/linux/vmlinux
Makefile:18: *** "Can't detect kernel BTF, use VMLINUX_BTF to specify it explicitly". Stop.

Well building the kernel in-tree is something people sometimes want to do ;)

Specifically, the selftests depend on this, so we should at least fix
those; but I guess it could work to just pass in VMLINUX_BTF as part of
the make -C from the selftests dir? I'll try that...
