That being said, /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/ is the normal place for
kernel modules, and that is where they go in debian as well.  There is a
fair amount of infrastructure in place for packagin kernel modules
already - if you move this conversation over to -mentors, I am sure you
will get some pointers to make life easier.
