I have found your patch and now it compiles but 'make modules_install'
fails with:

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
depmod: ___illegal_use_of_BTFIXUP_SETHI_in_module
depmod: ___f_set_pte
depmod: fix_kmap_begin
depmod: ___f_flush_cache_all
depmod: ___f_pte_clear
depmod: ___f_mk_pte
depmod: ___f_flush_tlb_all

I have upgraded to the latest modultils. I will install the latest
binutils and try again (right now I am using binutils
from Debian-testing).
