Yes, it seems like the timer interface changed [0]. I'll see if this can be patched with a quick sed of the offending function. If not there is not much that can be done until the next release lands, unless we pull all the svn changes in, which I would like to avoid.

The build is now unfortunately broken with numerous

error: implicit declaration of function ‘init_timer’; did you mean ‘init_timers’?

errors. Looks like 4.15 changed the timer interface.

I made a new package, linux-gpib-svn, that works.

I have created a dkms version of this package if anyone wants to check it out. No need to wait for package update after a kernel update, modules will be rebuilt automatically.
