  Permit to build for older kernel

Status in dkms package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  In our derivative we provided a patched Ubuntu kernel, today for lucid
  we are at version 2.6.32-47-eole.

  To avoid overpatching the kernel for drivers, we provides DKMS
  packages, but we have an issue with detection of newest kernel

  If the current system is running 2.6.32-47-generic (from CD
  installation for example), when we install our 2.6.32-47-eole and its
  headers, the DKMS package is built and installed only for the

  The work around is to let dkms_autoinstaller do the job: 1) install
  the DKMS module, then install the kernel headers, installing both in
  the same "apt-get install" invocation fails.

  I made a patch to add an option to build the DKMS modules for all
  installed kernels.
