btf: do not use CONFIG_OUTPUT_FORMAT
Building s390 kernel with CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_BTF fails, because CONFIG_OUTPUT_FORMAT is not defined. As a matter of fact, this variable appears to be x86-only, so other arches might be affected as well. Fix by obtaining this value from objdump output, just like it's already done for bin_arch. The exact objdump invocation is "inspired" by arch/powerpc/boot/wrapper. Also, use LANG=C for the existing bin_arch objdump invocation to avoid potential build issues on systems with non-English locale. Fixes: 341dfcf8d78e ("btf: expose BTF info through sysfs") Signed-off-by: Ilya Leoshkevich <> Signed-off-by: Daniel Borkmann <>
