AFAICS there is no complete policy for 3rd party module/source
packages(*). There are some packaging hints in the make-kpkg docs and I
added a guide to module-assistant documentation.

(*) I have tried to write one, but that has been a long time ago, IIRC
when Herbert was still around. No idea where the paper now is, most
likely between the unchecked stuff from old gluck...
