nvidia-kernel-dkms postint runs /usr/lib/dkms/common.postinst (added by
dh_dkms) so imho this is not a missing dependency in nvidia-kernel-dkms.

Anyway you are right, I was under the impression that lsb-release was
used in preinst, and not in postinst. So a Depends entry is sufficient,
I will fix that soon.
