If you know your custom kernel retains the kABI, I suggest you
entirely skip the section of the Wiki article that deals with the
kABI-related modifications.  No only this will reduce the chance of
making incorrect changes but also it is indeed a good idea to do kABI

If the build still fails, please post the last portion of the error
log (or e-mail the whole log file to me).
