According to this comment by Ben [1], this is an issue that is trivially fixed by adding the
appropriate header to arch/$ARCH/include/asm-prototypes.h. However, looking at the header
file, "#include <asm/string.h>" is already present so I'm not sure what else we're missing.

Indeed, and that file ([1]) wasn't touched in 5 years. I wonder if that then is not an error of the Debian build scripts.

That's not really an argument. It's also possible that the file needs to be updated.

BTW the same error is already present for 5.19.6-1 - the build ran on 2022-09-18. Maybe the
error corresponds with a change in the Debian linux repo ([3]) before that date.

Looking at [4] the message "Can't read ABI reference." could indicate a missing file - filename
is defined in line 51 ([5]) and `/debian/abi/` does not exist in [3].

I don't think it's a bug in the Debian scripts. Otherwise it wouldn't just affect alpha.
