You just replace:




in your source file and, assuming your libbpf version is up-to-date,
that should be it as far as the kernel is concerned.

However, you obviously also need to make sure there are no semantic
issues in your program before doing this. I.e., data_end is no longer
the end of your packet, so if you are using data_end-data to calculate
the packet len, that will no longer be accurate. If you need to access
data beyond the first frag you'll need to use the
xdp_{load,store}_bytes() helpers.

Note that if you're using libxdp you also need to wait for this to be
resolved: - I'm
halfway through a fix for it, so hopefully that should land before too
