What build problem do you get when you include "#include <linux/bug.h>"
here on kernel 4.9.299?

I haven't tried, but per the explanation, you get issues if you tried to
include bug.h in the first place, since then you get

-> includes build_bug.h (since the patch)
-> uses build_bug.h from backports
-> includes bug.h (does nothing, double include)

Yep that's the problem.

What I'm trying is something like:
Though it won't work in kernel intergration mode. My makefile foo does not
allow me to come up a idea.

This does not work for me.
We have to do this inside the kernel make call, when the kernel build system calls backports again, we should have the needed information in that call only.

The build works like this:
1. The normal make call to backports, KERNELRELEASE is not set and
   Makefile forwards the call to Makefile.real.
2. This calls " modules" in the next step.
3. This calls the kernel build system with
   "@$(MAKE) -C $(KLIB_BUILD) M=$(BACKPORT_DIR) modules"
4. This calls again Makefile, but now with KERNELRELEASE set.
5. This calls Makefile.kernel and uses the kernel build system to build
   the backports code.

I tried adding a new rule to Makefile.kernel and then call it in using the kernel build system, but it looks like it only supports make targets supported by the kernel build system.

How do we make the kernel build system call our make target first?
