Is this from speakup-decext repo on github? This fails because location
of signal_pending changed from include/linux/sched.h in 4.10 to
include/linux/sched/signal.h in 4.11. So if you are compiling with 4.11
then in speakup_soft.c, please replace #include <linux/sched.h> with
#include <linux/sched/signal.h>.
