Hi Andreea,
	Any plan to share the bindgen script so we could generate the binding again any kernel version if needed?

The kernel version can be selected by using features. For now I only added bindings for linux-4.14.0 and linux-4.20.0, but others can be added if needed. The version can be selected using features:
