I don't have a 19.10 machine to test on, but at least on an 18.04
machine with the 5.3.0-52.46 kernel, it works as intended.

However, building the module for the previous 5.3.0-51.44 kernel fails
now, and it doesn't fail when I use my original patch.

Note that as of now, 5.3.0-51.44 is still the latest "official" HWE
kernel for 18.04, and 5.3.0-52.46 is only available from Ubuntu's
"bionic-proposed" repo.
