It really is important to have the dkms kmod and dkms located in the
same repo for dependancy reasons.

Another problem with dkms kmods is the development requirements, which
can be troublesome in some deployments. That reminds me to update the
dkms module install dependencies to include the development
environment.

It might be possible to have a dkms kmod though alongside a kabi
tracking kmod, dkms will supercede the kabi module, and put it back
when/if the dkms module is removed.
