Changelog:
v1:
 * Added tags
 * Updated patch #4 with test results
 * Changed scripts/mod/modpost.c to create inclusion of vermagic.h
   from kernel folder and not from general include/linux. This is
   needed to generate *.mod.c files, while building modules.
v0: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200414155732.1236944-1-leon@kernel.org

Hi,

This is followup to the failure reported by Borislav [1] and suggested
fix later on [2].

The series removes all includes of linux/vermagic.h, updates hns and
nfp to use same kernel versioning scheme (exactly like we did for
other drivers in previous cycle) and removes vermagic.h from global
include folder.

1. Honestly, I have no idea if it can go to net-rc, clearly not all my
patches are fixes, so I'm sending them to the net-next.
2. Still didn't get response from kbuild, but it passed my own
compilation tests.

Thanks
