this needs to go under FEATURE_TESTS_EXTRA and you need to call
$(call feature_check,clang-bpf-co-re) before checking on $(feature-clang-bpf-co-re)

otherwise the test-all will mark it as detected even if it's not

I think the 'prepare' target is misused already with other stuff,
there's generated bpf_counter.c dependency on util/bpf_skel/bpf_prog_profiler.skel.h
in util/.bpf_counter.o.cmd, that should triger the build no?

we have few other dependencies like that for flex/bison generation
perhaps we could follow also that

please move this up where we have similar setup like HOSTCC and others

we already build libbpf.a, chekc 'LIBBPF = $(BPF_PATH)libbpf.a' above

is there a reason to use call in here? you could define QUIET_GENSKEL
to use $@ and use it the same way as we use the rest of QUIET_* stuf
in Makefile.perf

hum, what's the reason for dummy skeleton? it just adds
time to compilation no?

thanks,
