I expected the small change applied to fix
<URL: https://bugs.debian.org/836578 > to work also on older dkms
versions, but I do not really know the inner workings of dkms.

Perhaps one of the dkms maintainers can explain how the following patch
can be made to work with both new and old dkms versions?
