Bug Description

SRU Request:

[Impact]
dm-writeboost-dkms won't build for 4.17 and later kernels. That includes hwe-edge/4.18 for bionic.

[Test case]
Test that the resulting dkms builds for 4.18 and 4.15 kernels.

[Regression potential]
The resulting dkms could fail to build for older kernels. Tested for 4.15.

If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-bionic. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.
