First of all, this patch is completely white space namaged.

Secondly, this is a problem in how you are building your kernel (or
ext4 as a module, if you are trying to build ext4 as some kind of out
of tree module or some such).  When you do a kernel build, the file
include/linux/version.h is automatically generated.  It will look
something like this.

% cat /build/ext4-64/usr/include/linux/version.h
#define LINUX_VERSION_CODE 327936
#define KERNEL_VERSION(a,b,c) (((a) << 16) + ((b) << 8) + (c))
