Do that if you must, but please do it properly (i.e. check the libelf
version and error out explicitly with a suitable message, instead of
relying on -Werror), and don't backport the change to stable kernels.

The patch which I referenced in my commit message suddently broke the
build for me between 4.19.32 and .33; I consider that a regression which
ought to be fixed.
