  lirc_imon.ko does not get installed through dkms

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: lirc

  Dkms does not install the lirc_imon.ko from lirc_modules_source when
  the kernel gets upgraded (in current lucid). The dkms output reads:

  Running module version sanity check.

  Error! Module version 0.6 for lirc_imon.ko
  is not newer than what is already found in kernel 2.6.32-21-generic (0.6).
  You may override by specifying --force.

  Fact is that the lirc_imon.ko provided by the default kernel does not
  work with the following imon controller:

  15c2:ffdc SoundGraph Inc. iMON PAD Remote Controller

  Manually copying the module built by DKMS solves the problem

  sudo cp

  It would be nice if dkms could copy this file regardless of the
  version available in the kernel (using the -f option?)
