I see. linux-lts has HZ set to 100, that's why the assert works there.

It works with linux-lts (or any kernel below 4.20) for now. As you already noticed, the module is broken with kernel 4.20. I hope they will update their sources soon.

Build fails with current kernel because of [1]. But that is fixable [2].

More importantly, build fails on this assert [3]: STATIC_ASSERT((MSEC_PER_SEC % HZ) == 0);

MSEC_PER_SEC is 1000 and HZ is 300 on Arch kernels. Which makes me wonder, has this module ever worked with stock Arch kernel?
