Do you have example command with VMLINUX_BTF override that didn't work
(and what error message was emitted)?

I'm planning to mirror runqslower into libbpf Github repo and this
../../../vmlinux piece will be completely out of place in that
context. Also it only will help when building kernel in-tree. So I'd
rather not add this.
