I tested the latest coccinelle
on my PC at office.

The result is as follows:

$ spatch --version
spatch version 1.0.6-00359-g1a8f958 compiled with OCaml version 4.02.3
Flags passed to the configure script: --prefix=/home/masahiro
OCaml scripting support: yes
Python scripting support: yes
Syntax of regular expresssions: PCRE
$ spatch --sp-file nothing.cocci kernel/kmod.c
init_defs_builtins: /home/masahiro/bin/../lib/coccinelle/standard.h
Using native version of ocamlc/ocamlopt/ocamldep
ocamlopt.opt -shared -o /tmp/ocaml_cocci_d59676.cmxs -g -I
/usr/lib/ocaml  -I /home/masahiro/bin/../lib/coccinelle/ocaml
Compilation OK!
Loading ML code of the SP...
implementation mismatch on Coccilib
Fatal error: exception
"implementation mismatch on Coccilib")

I use Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

$ cat  /etc/lsb-release

I checked install.txt
and I confirmed all of the following packages are installed on my PC.

On Debian/Ubuntu, install the following packages
 - pkg-config (optional, but strongly recommended)
 - ocaml-native-compilers (or alternatively ocaml)
 - ocaml-findlib
 - menhir and libmenhir-ocaml-dev (optional, bundled)
 - libpcre-ocaml-dev (optional, bundled)
 - texlive-fonts-extra (for the documentation)

Best Regards
Masahiro Yamada
