Bug Description

Opening an Erlang source in emacs with erlang-mode renders the file with incomplete syntax highlighting. At the same time a error message is logged in emacs:

  Error during redisplay: (jit-lock-function 504) signaled (void-function case)

A Lisp backtrace for this:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (void-function case)
  (case (nth 3 state) (34 font-lock-string-face) (39 'default))
  (cond ((nth 3 state) (case (nth 3 state) (34 font-lock-string-face) (39 'default))) (t font-lock-comment-face))

  display-buffer(#<buffer ggsn_gn.erl> (display-buffer-same-window (inhibit-same-window)))
  pop-to-buffer(#<buffer ggsn_gn.erl> (display-buffer-same-window (inhibit-same-window)) nil)
  pop-to-buffer-same-window(#<buffer ggsn_gn.erl>)
  find-file("ggsn_gn.er..." t)
  funcall-interactively(find-file "ggsn_gn.er..." t)
  call-interactively(find-file nil nil)

The backtrace points to the erlang-syntactic-face-function in erlang.el. That function is added by a patch that is only present in the Debian and Ubuntu packages.
