Please make sure you test with mainline. Basing your developments on
something as old as 4.14 makes no sense for something that targets
mainline. You should write your code on mainline, test it there, and
eventually backport it to whatever version you want to use.

Otherwise, we are guaranteed to merge something that will not work.
