Bug Description

dm-writeboost-dkms won't build with bionic/linux-hwe-edge 5.0.

[Test case]
Test that the dkms now builds with 5.0 kernel and still builds with 4.15 kernel.

[Regression potential]
The module may not build anymore on older kernels, that has been tested.

dm-writeboost-dkms fails to build on linux 4.19.
