samples/bpf: add back functionality to redefine LLC command
It is practical to be-able-to redefine the location of the LLVM command 'llc', because not all distros have a LLVM version with bpf target support. Thus, it is sometimes required to compile LLVM from source, and sometimes it is not desired to overwrite the distros default LLVM version. This feature was removed with 128d1514be35 ("samples/bpf: Use llc in PATH, rather than a hardcoded value"). Add this features back. Note that it is possible to redefine the LLC on the make command like: make samples/bpf/ LLC=~/git/llvm/build/bin/llc Fixes: 128d1514be35 ("samples/bpf: Use llc in PATH, rather than a hardcoded value") Signed-off-by: Jesper Dangaard Brouer <> Acked-by: Alexei Starovoitov <> Acked-by: Naveen N.
