Bug Description

I'm using Ubuntu 17.10, running kernel 4.13.0-38-generic and using systemtap version 3.1-3. I'm trying to run the following systemtap script from here:

#! /usr/bin/env stap

global slabs

probe vm.kmem_cache_alloc {
        slabs [execname(), bytes_req]<<<1

        dummy = "";
        foreach ([name, bytes] in slabs) {
                if (dummy != name)
                        printf("\nProcess:%s\n", name);
                printf("Slab_size:%d\tCount:%d\n", bytes, @count(slabs[name, bytes]));
                dummy = name;
        delete slabs

however, compilation fails due to `__GFP_REPEAT` being undefined:
