Subject[PATCH bpf-next v2 02/10] tools/bpf/runqslower: Fix override option for VMLINUX_BTF
From: Toke Høiland-Jørgensen <>

The runqslower tool refuses to build without a file to read vmlinux BTF
from. The build fails with an error message to override the location by
setting the VMLINUX_BTF variable if autodetection fails. However, the
Makefile doesn't actually work with that override - the error message is
still emitted.

Fix this by only doing auto-detection if no override is set. And while
we're at it, also look for a vmlinux file in the current kernel build dir
if none if found on the running kernel.

Fixes: 9c01546d26d2 ("tools/bpf: Add runqslower tool to tools/bpf")
