I don't know. I originally submitted this against kernel-package,
because that didn't work for me. It was Manoj (I think) who reassigned
it. I don't want to play reassignment-pingpong, since I really have no
clue how module building could, should or does work.

The problem is maybe just missing documentation. I don't have
kernel-package sid version installed anywhere, but given Manoj's mails
to this report I wouldn't expect he has changed anything.
Someone who really understands how these packages work together should
write a brief summary, and if that doesn't lead to code changes, I'm
willing to write a documentation patch against whatever package it makes
