Subjectresolve_btfids breaks kernel cross-compilation
The requirement to build resolve_btfids whenever CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_BTF
is enabled breaks some cross builds. For example, when building a 64-bit
powerpc kernel on amd64 I get:

Auto-detecting system features:
... libelf: [ [32mon[m ]
... zlib: [ [32mon[m ]
... bpf: [ [31mOFF[m ]

BPF API too old
make[6]: *** [Makefile:295: bpfdep] Error 1

The contents of tools/bpf/resolve_btfids/feature/test-bpf.make.output:

In file included from /home/sforshee/src/u-k/unstable/tools/arch/powerpc/include/uapi/asm/bitsperlong.h:11,

14 | #error Inconsistent word size. Check asm/bitsperlong.h
| ^~~~~

This is because tools/arch/powerpc/include/uapi/asm/bitsperlong.h sets
__BITS_PER_LONG based on the predefinied compiler macro __powerpc64__,
which is not defined by the host compiler. What can we do to get cross
builds working again?
