Bug#696570: nvidia-kernel-dkms: linux/version.h not used anymore

Package: nvidia-kernel-dkms
Version: 310.19-0+exp1
Severity: normal

/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/source/include/linux/version.h is not updated
on recent kernels.
The top level makefile in linux sources define
version_h := include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h                                                                               
and echo the new kernel version there so the old file remains out of

conftest.h uses the kernel version heavily and some tests fail because
of that. Specifically failing on
for me.

There are patches hanging around for upstream's conftest.sh but you may
want to fix the static conftest.h in debian with the new include file.

304.64 may have the same problem.
