I pushed the following fix into master and stable-2.6 branches
of lttng-modules. Can you give it a try ?

    Fix: build against Ubuntu kernels
    Recent Ubuntu kernels appear to define DEBIAN_API_VERSION, but they are
    not really a Debian kernel per-se: the abi-debian-version.sh cannot find
    the expected Debian kernel version string layout.
    Therefore, change the conditional check to use directly the
    LTTNG_DEBIAN_VERSION_CODE define, which is defined only when the
    abi-debian-version.sh script figures out it builds against a Debian
