Kernel config for 6.6.8

Trying to configure a 6.6.8 kernel to use HID-BPF, but it fails to initialise:

[    3.210054] hid_bpf: error while preloading HID BPF dispatcher: -22

The issue appears to relate to entrypoints_bpf__load(), specifically the "run" stage of bpf_load_and_run().

This is almost certainly a configuration issue, and so I have attached my kernel config. I suspect that hid-bpf has a missing extra dependency beyond CONFIG_DYNAMIC_FTRACE_WITH_DIRECT_CALLS=y.
Comment 1 Chris Rankin 2023-12-28 00:10:25 UTC
FWIW I have discovered that my kernel was missing CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_BTF, and I also hadn't installed the pahole tool on my build machine. Perhaps the Kconfig rules need updating?
