Re: Backporting ebpf

Hi Ryanna,

That repository contains changes to add ebpf to the kernel shipped with Rhel 7.3. 
If you clone branch bpf_3.18_features that will give you a working kernel with ebpf features from  kernel version 3.18, that still needs to be tested. 
At this moment the master branch contains ebpf changes from  3.19 but I'm still working on this on my free time.

Hi Carlos,

I was hoping to back port eBPF to kernel-3.10. Does the code here https://github.com/cneira/ebpf-backports/tree/master/linux-3.10.0-514.21.1.el7.x86_64 work with Linux kernel 3.10? 
Thanks,
Riya

that is just one patch.
you want to backport most of it to be usable.
I believe few redhat folks attempted to backport it to centos7, but
it's tedious.
centos8 has better chance to support bpf.
