Subject[PATCH bpf-next v2] bpf: btf: limit logging of ignored BTF mismatches
From
Enabling CONFIG_MODULE_ALLOW_BTF_MISMATCH is an indication that BTF
mismatches are expected and module loading should proceed
anyway. Logging with pr_warn() on every one of these "benign"
mismatches creates unnecessary noise when many such modules are
loaded. Instead, handle this case with a single log warning that BTF
info may be unavailable.

Mismatches also result in calls to __btf_verifier_log() via
__btf_verifier_log_type() or btf_verifier_log_member(), adding several
additional lines of logging per mismatched module. Add checks to these
paths to skip logging for module BTF mismatches in the "allow
mismatch" case.

All existing logging behavior is preserved in the default
CONFIG_MODULE_ALLOW_BTF_MISMATCH=n case.

v2:
- Use pr_warn_once instead of skipping logging entirely
- Also skip btf verifier logs for ignored mismatches

v1: https://lore.kernel.org/bpf/20221109024155.2810410-1-connoro@google.com/
