I did it today:
- ./devel/backports-update-manager
- apply ccm patch from Arend (subscribe to backports mailing list -

- ./ --verbose --clean --git-revision next-20170310
--copy-list copy-list.ath ~/linux-next/ ~/backports-output

And backports generate/compile fine.
(coccinelle installed from APT, ubuntu 16.04)
