As far as I can see, it wouldn't be a problem.
Patrick Matthäi just mentioned the very complicated way used in fglrx,
however I've once written debian package dealing with dkms  and the
following expression in .postinst was doing all the work:
if [ "$1" = "configure" ]; then
/usr/lib/dkms/common.postinst $PACKAGE_NAME $CVERSION "" $ARCH $2
As one can see in /usr/lib/dkms/common.postinst, it looks for kernels,
rebuilds everything and so on.
So I suppose it shouldn't be very hard work to make it behave the way you want.
Best wishes and have a nice day,
