There are lots (35) of "KERNEL_VERSION(4, 5, 0)" in chromeos-4.4.
That should not matter with the clamped LINUX_VERSION_CODE, but
I'd prefer to clamp KERNEL_VERSION as well just to be sure. On
top of that, some of the vendor code we carry along does check
SUBVERSION, but that is probably more of an academic concern.

I backported the relevant patch into chromeos-4.4, so we should
be fine.
