Bug Description

This backport from 4.19-stable is not suitable for 4.15. It breaks the build if CONFIG_MODVERSIONS is turned on.

00e55d63b41f genksyms: Teach parser about 128-bit built-in types

This broke bionic/raspi2 (which has since been changed to disable CONFIG_MODVERSIONS anyway, but the above commit is still not valid for bionic).

The commit should be reverted.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-done-bionic'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-failed-bionic'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
