  Kernel modules generated incorrectly when system is localized to a
  non-English language

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When LANG is set to a non-English language with the relevant language
  pack installed, Kbuild's script fails to function
  correctly when building out-of-tree kernel modules on architectures
  that do not use the C version of recordmcount (e.g. ppc64le). This can
  result in invalid kernel modules being built.

  This was due to the non-C version of recordmcount relying on parsing
  the output of objdump(1), which can be localized. This is now fixed in
  the linux-kbuild tree with the following commit:

  This commit is not in the torvalds/linux.git tree yet, but it would be
  good to backport the change to the Ubuntu kernel, particularly the
  linux-headers packages that are used for building out-of-tree kernel

  Steps to Reproduce:
  1. Set LANG to a language other than English (e.g. ja_JP.UTF-8)
  2. Make sure that the correct language pack is installed and that 
localization is working; for example, run a command expected to print an error 
message, like `cp` with no additional arguments.
  3. Install the NVIDIA GPU driver

  Actual results:
  The kernel panics when loading the nvidia-modeset kernel module.

  Expected results:
  The driver should install and load normally.
