Thanks Steve.  That is a help.
I was just trying to decide if I should return from interrupt, or
declare a fault :-)

When too many things started going wrong (didn't have coccinelle
installed, have never heard of it, have no idea what it is, apt-get
installed it, was informed it was too old, git cloned it, installed
dependencies for building it, found that it would not compile, even
with the dependencies installed), the "too hard" LED came on and I
figured I should ask some questions.  I'll go find somebody I can ask
about compiling coccinelle (whatever that is) on Ubuntu 16.04, figure
out what's going on there, and return from interrupt now.

Then I'll either figure out what's going on with the --integrate flag
in backports, or decide to live with a loadable module.

Thanks for the help.
