Thanks to Robert Millan (Closes: #631657)
The patch omits some context that is probably important to what is
actually going on, so I do not speak with full confidence. It seems that
depmod is roughly similar to freebsd's kldxref(8). The latter is not
mentioned in the changelog and does not appear in the patch -- does
kFreeBSD circumvent the generation of hints for the kernel linker, or is
this step taken elsewhere (in the individual module build routine, say),
or should it be added in DKMS?
Sorry for my ignorance,
