Ok I got it what you mean.
In the latest mainline kernel I observed that there are several
changes to uapi/ion.h header file.
Like this one:
staging: android: ion: Break the ABI in the name of forward progress

I can quickly make those changes.
In fact I actually started with linux-next tree itself.
But there is one problem that I am facing using linux-next or latest
mainline kernel.
Right now, I am running Ubuntu on Oracle virtual box 5.1 (I don't have
the real Ubuntu PC as of now).
This virtual box supports only 4.10 LTS kernel version.
If I try to build and flash for higher kernel version, the system does
not boot and goes to kernel panic during boot (even without my
changes).
So, I ended up using the same LTS kernel version.

Now I need to figure out how to use the linux-next tree.
If you have any suggestions please let me know.


Thanks,
Pintu
