The interaction of kernel-package with dkms is currently broken the opposite
way: building on a remote machine works, building on the one you install
kernel-headers on is broken: it will notice the path you built the kernel in
exists and instead of /usr/src/linux-headers-$VERSION it will make links to
the build path.  This will work only as long that path contains the same
kernel version.
