Public bug reported:

The kpatch package needs to be updated to support bionic.

The updated package contains fixes for these bugs:
- kpatch-dkms 0.3.2-1ubuntu4.2: kpatch kernel module failed to build (#1665613)
- kpatch ADT test failures with 4.10 kernels (#1659581)

The upstream source for kpatch does not use changelogs. The git commit record 
can be
found at:
https://github.com/dynup/kpatch/commits/0.5.0

This package update contains all upstream commits between v0.3.2 and 0.5.0, as 
well as a set of 
Ubuntu-specific changes:
- to safely patch ubuntu kernels, we must build the way ubuntu kernels are
  built and not just use the mainline kernel's makefile.
- we must use the paths for binaries where they are installed via debian 
package.
- support is added for ubuntu's included external packages. (ZFS)
- support is added for ubuntu kernel flavors. (generic, lowlatency)

Testing that was performed:  (logs will be attached for all items)
- building using pbuilder and installing and removing the debians
- building the DKMS module and installing it
- building a livepatch module from a source patch
