Interestingly enough I am using clang version 10.0.0! Even with that creating a structure from the examples like so:

struct {
__uint(type, BPF_MAP_TYPE_HASH);
__uint(max_entries, 1);
__type(key, __u32);
__type(value, __u32);
__uint(pinning, LIBBPF_PIN_BY_NAME);
} pid_map SEC(".maps");

I still get: libbpf: BTF is required, but is missing or corrupted.
Your BPF code must be relying on CO-RE. I can check if you can show me
your BPF source code.

The pinning and map definition itself doesn't rely on CO-RE and thus
doesn't need kernel BTF.

Here is my clang version output:

vagrant@vagrant:/vagrant$ clang -v

I will continue looking into new clang versions to see if mine is slightly out of date!
