Linux 4.7-rc1 came out yesterday, and here's a new build failure:
netdev->trans_start has been moved to the transmit queue.
Here's a patch. It uses a compat interface meant for "legacy drivers only",
but as its used in so many places in the kernel, I guess you'll have plenty
of time to migrate to the newest and greatest way.
Only lightly tested: the module builds, doesn't explode and basic networking
in guests seems to work.
Tested on 5.0.20 as shipped by Debian.
An one-liner (+#ifdefs) is usually not considered copyrightable; in case you
think it is, I contribute it as MIT.
An imaginary friend squared is a real enemy.
