SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 1/2] libbpf: show error info about missing ".BTF" section
Hi Changbin,

Recently I encountered the same issue, it could be caused by:
either missing to install tool pahole or missing to enable kernel
configuration CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_BTF.

Could we give explict info for reasoning failure? Like:

"libbpf: failed to find '.BTF' ELF section in /home/changbin/work/linux/vmlinux,
please install pahole and enable CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_BTF=y for kernel building".

> Error: failed to load BTF from /home/changbin/work/linux/vmlinux: No such file or directory

This log is confusing when we can find vmlinux file but without BTF
section. Consider to use a separate patch to detect vmlinux not
found case and print out "No such file or directory"?

Thanks,
Leo
