There are a number of changes in kernel 4.20 that affect building the VB 
modules. These are as follows:

1. In struct ethtool_ops, the get_settings member is renamed get_link_ksettings, 
and the callback method is changed. To satisfy the new method, routine 
convert_link_ksettings_to_legacy_settings(), which is not exported by the 
kernel, had to be duplicated.

2. Routine ktime_get_real_ts() must be replaced by ktime_get_real_ts64() and 
there are other places where 64-bit names have to be used.

3. In the drm routines, info->flags no longer accepts FBINFO_CAN_FORCE_OUTPUT. 
According to the kernel commit message, this flag was unused and it can be 
deleted without any harmful effects.

The patch file for these changes is attached.
