  kernel 4.2 incompatible with old soft

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  version.h is absent in headers upcoming with new kernel-4.2, so it
  leads to failure to compile kernel modules of some older programs like
  Symantec SAV, etc. Some like virtualbox guest additions (v 5.0.10)
  claim that can't find headers for current kernel.

  Kernel-3.x still have it in place, for e.g. /usr/src/linux-
  headers-3.19.0-39/include/linux/version.h .
