hi,
we'd like to have bcc linked with libbpf instead of the
github submodule, initial change is discussed in here:
https://github.com/iovisor/bcc/pull/2535

In order to do that, we need to have access to uapi headers
compatible with libbpf rpm, bcc is attaching and using them
during compilation.

I added them in the fedora spec below (not submitted yet),
so libbpf would carry those headers.

Thoughts? thanks,
I think it may break a bunch of people who rely on bcc being a single library.
What is the main motiviation to use libbpf as a shared library in libbcc?

I think we can have both options. libbpf as git submodule and as shared.
In practice git submodule is so much simpler to use and a lot less headaches.
