If you install this package it might happen that a drm driver from 
kernel26 is loaded together with drm.ko from your package, which might 
be incompatible.

To ensure it is loaded first, you must put it in updates/, putting it in 
extra works purely out of coincidence.

Put at least drm.ko in extra.
