thanks. trivia and a question:

The checkpatch convention commonly used for $realfile comparisons
to file patterns with directory paths is m@...@

return $realfile =~ m@^tools/testing/selftests/bpf/progs/.*\.c@ ||
$realfile =~ m@^samples/bpf/.*_kern\.c@ ||

And lastly, is this pattern meant to escape the periods?
I presume so, but if not, the leading period isn't useful.

Maybe:
$realfile =~ m@/bpf/.*\.bpf\.c$@;

$ git ls-files | grep "\.bpf\.c$"
kernel/bpf/preload/iterators/iterators.bpf.c
tools/bpf/bpftool/skeleton/pid_iter.bpf.c
tools/bpf/bpftool/skeleton/profiler.bpf.c
tools/bpf/runqslower/runqslower.bpf.c
