There was a short discussion not long ago on the TUR mailing list
regarding external kernel modules. It was suggested that they be setup
using dkms, which will easily allow one package, for multiple kernels.

Having looked at the dkms setup suggested, and the few example modules in
the AUR (search dkms), this might be a good idea, and make it much simpler
to support a range of different kernels. Contrary to what andyrtr said,
the DKMS system looks quite good, and would fit well.
