Bug#747649: ITP: ceph-dkms -- Ceph FS and RBD Linux kernel drivers (DKMS version)

I had to do it for troubleshooting as well as for delivering bugfix and new 
features support. I agree is should be temporary thing but I see no harm in 
it. I think I'm not the only one who might need it. For example there is 
upstream bug report to package modules for RHEL separately:


In any case I'm planning to target it for "experimental" only.
I know it is not suitable for release without upstream support.

Why do you think we'd be better without ceph-dkms?

Would it be OK for you if I keep it in experimental (or in unstable with RC 
bug "not suitable for release" to prevent migration to "testing")?

Thank you. It might be a good idea to let you know about problems.
For instance I've been hit hard by the following bug (I/O errors on RBD 
device) that was just fixed by upstream (so I'll have to use my DKMS package 
until fix propagate to 3.14):


Patch is included to the above bug report.

Trust me, I'm not doing it from boredom and it will be pity to let the effort 
die in vain...

All the best,
 Dmitry Smirnov.
