Building lttng-modules 2.7.1 against linux-rt-4.1.15-rt17 (the most recent
releases respectively, except for linux-rt-4.4-rc*) fails because of the
patch introducing the sched_waking tracepoint to linux-rt
(sched-introduce-the-27trace_sched_waking-27-tracepoint.patch), which also
updates the sched_wakeup and sched_wakeup_template function prototypes to
The check for LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(4,3,0) in the
instrumentation by lttng-modules
(instrumentation/events/lttng-module/sched.h) fails of course.
