Well... go to /usr/src/modules/debian and edit control.m4 to include:

Source: drm-trunk-module-KVERS

If you already have a line like
Package: drm-trunk-module-KVERS

So, if the package name is different, well you'll know what to do. Make
sure that the Source line is in included in the first paragraph, not the
second. I put it directly after the Standards-Version line.
