Package: oss4
Version: None
Severity: minor

I don't know the policies here, but in Ubuntu, we needed to apply tho
following patch for oss4 to build. It appears that Ubuntu doesn't have
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build symlinks.

*** /tmp/tmpuzeKti
In Ubuntu, we've applied the attached patch to achieve the following:

  * debian/{dkms/dkms.conf.template,m-a/rules}:
    s/source/build/ in Kernel headers paths.
    Thanks to Jason Scurfu and Niall Creech (LP: #519577) 

We thought you might be interested in supporting such situations, as
many other DKMS using packages don't require this modification.
