      Description

      I am trying to bring up arm64 support for centos7 and it turns out centos 7 / rhel 7 for arm64 uses kernel 4.14 that we do not have any ldiskfs patches for.

      I checked and the closest match is ubuntu18 4.15 kernel - the ldiskfs series has only a single trivial reject in ext4-data-in-dirent.patch

      We also need a way to select it in configure that's a bit more complicated since I don't know how to do it easily yet.

      Then there are compile errors:

      /home/green/git/lustre-release/lustre/ptlrpc/../../lustre/ldlm/ldlm_lockd.c:135:74: error: macro "DEFINE_TIMER" requires 4 arguments, but only 2 given
       static CFS_DEFINE_TIMER(waiting_locks_timer, waiting_locks_callback, 0, 0);   
                                                                                ^
