samples/bpf: Set flag __SANE_USERSPACE_TYPES__ for MIPS to fix build warnings
There exists many build warnings when make M=samples/bpf on the Loongson platform, this issue is MIPS related, x86 compiles just fine. Here are some warnings: CC samples/bpf/ibumad_user.o samples/bpf/ibumad_user.c: In function ‘dump_counts’: samples/bpf/ibumad_user.c:46:24: warning: format ‘%llu’ expects argument of type ‘long long unsigned int’, but argument 3 has type ‘__u64’ {aka ‘long unsigned int’} [-Wformat=] printf("0x%02x : %llu\n", key, value); ~~~^ ~~~~~ %lu CC samples/bpf/offwaketime_user.o samples/bpf/offwaketime_user.c: In function ‘print_ksym’: samples/bpf/offwaketime_user.c:34:17: warning: format ‘%llx’ expects argument of type ‘long long unsigned int’, but argument 3 has type ‘__u64’ {aka ‘long unsigned int’} [-Wformat=] printf("%s/%llx;", sym->name, addr); ~~~^ ~~~~ %lx samples/bpf/offwaketime_user.c: In function ‘print_stack’: samples/bpf/offwaketime_user.c:68:17: warning: format ‘%lld’ expects argument of type ‘long long int’, but argument 3 has type ‘__u64’ {aka ‘long unsigned int’} [-Wformat=] printf(";%s %lld\n", key->waker, count); ~~~^ ~~~~~ %ld MIPS needs __SANE_USERSPACE_TYPES__ before <linux/types.h> to select 'int-ll64.h' in arch/mips/include/uapi/asm/types.h, then it can avoid build warnings when printing __u64 with %llu, %llx or %lld. The header tools/include/linux/types.h defines __SANE_USERSPACE_TYPES__, it seems that we can include <linux/types.h> in the source files which have build warnings, but it has no effect due to actually it includes usr/include/linux/types.h instead of tools/include/linux/types.h, the problem is that "usr/include" is preferred first than "tools/include" in samples/bpf/Makefile, that sounds like a ugly hack to -Itools/include before -Iusr/include. So define __SANE_USERSPACE_TYPES__ for MIPS in samples/bpf/Makefile is proper, if add "TPROGS_CFLAGS += -D__SANE_USERSPACE_TYPES__" in samples/bpf/Makefile, it appears the following error: Auto-detecting system features: ... libelf: [ on ] ... zlib: [ on ] ... bpf: [ OFF ] BPF API too old make[3]: *** [Makefile:293: bpfdep] Error 1 make[2]: *** [Makefile:156: all] Error 2 With #ifndef __SANE_USERSPACE_TYPES__ in tools/include/linux/types.h, the above error has gone and this ifndef change does not hurt other compilations.
